The Engineering Club won First Place in SMUD Solar Regatta over the May 16-18, 2014 weekend. The students designed and built everything from the hull, to the controls, to the electrical system, etc.

The Solar Team won a trophy for the endurance race and our teams beat teams from all over the state including 4-year college teams.

The Engineering Department offers all the courses satisfying the lower division engineering requirements of most California colleges and universities, along with an Engineering Certificate (Fall 2009) that allows students to enter the field with less than a Bachelor's degree.

Students may profitably begin their study of chemical, civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering at Sierra College. Job openings abound in many engineering fields.

Transfer major requirements in Engineering are available in the Counseling Center. Students should consult a counselor and the appropriate college catalog for other transfer requirements.
