Assessment Tests, Guidlines and Test Schedule

Assessment Tests, Guidlines and Test Schedule
There have been some changes made to some classes. Be sure to go to the Schedule of Classes and verify that no changes have been made to your class. Engineers apply the theories and principles of science and mathematics to practical technical problems. At Foothill College, the Engineering Major provides a solid foundation in what is normally referred to as the "Engineering Core" at most colleges and universities. Mathematics, physics, chemistry and introductory engineering courses such as circuit analysis and statics make up the bulk of this core. The major is designed so that, in most cases, it provides all of the basic subjects necessary for a smooth transfer to the candidate's chosen college or university.
