Welcome to Engineering Degree Opportunities in North Carolina

Engineering Pathways is a joint project of the North Carolina Community College System and the University of North Carolina engineering programs to build and develop the pathways for students to begin engineering studies at a community college and then transfer as seamlessly as possible to one of the UNC engineering programs. To accomplish this goal, we have the following objectives:

  • Encourage growth of high level mathematics and science courses along with freshman and sophomore engineering courses in the community colleges.
  • Serve as a communication tool for students interested in engineering careers and pathways to success.
  • Provide information on course offerings on a regional basis so students may take needed classes at local community colleges.
  • Provide course materials for NCCCS programs and faculty interested in offering Physics I and II along with Introduction to engineering, engineering graphics, and engineering statics.

We encourage you to review this web site. If you are a community college faculty member, please join us for our meetings. If you are a potential engineering student, please contact your local community college or the UNC programs of interest to you.   

The next North Carolina Engineering Pathways meeting will be held in the spring of 2023.  Western Carolina University and Blue Ridge Community College are the hosts.  A meeting date has not yet been finalized.
