MSJC Offers New STEM Courses in Engineering

June 15, 2015

Students high school age and older are encouraged to enroll in new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses at Mt. San Jacinto College. The courses, which start in August, provide exciting hands-on learning in engineering technology and design and are designed to provide a direct pathway to a career.

The new classes, Principles of Engineering Technology ENGR-120 and Introduction to Engineering Design ENGR-121, are funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. As part of a high school–community college–university set of completion pathways, the curricula, equipment and supplies are provided by Project Lead the Way. PLTW is a national organization currently offering unique and successful courses in high schools and colleges. The courses address three key engineering specialties: Advanced Manufacturing, Civil and Architectural, and Electronics.
