Engineering Transfer Track
  • Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS)

Engineering students at FVCC benefit from small class sizes and personalized attention from instructors. Upon transferring to four-year engineering programs, FVCC graduates are well-prepared for junior-level courses.

FVCC’s Engineering transfer track prepares students to transfer to a variety of engineering programs at Montana State University-Bozeman or Montana Tech of the University of Montana.


  • Montana State University-Bozeman offers programs in bio-resources, chemical, civil, computer, construction technology, electrical, industrial, and mechanical engineering.
  • Montana Tech of the University of Montana offers programs in engineering science, environmental, general, geological, geophysical, metallurgical, mining, and petroleum engineering.
  • Surveying and civil engineering are closely related fields, and FVCC provides an excellent opportunity to begin pursuing both professional licenses at the same time.
  • Demand for engineers is projected to grow 7% between 2016 and 2026, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Attributes of Successful Engineers

  • Aptitude for high-level math and science
  • Enjoy applying math and science to solve technical problems
  • Strong critical thinking skills
  • Good communication skills

Transfer Tips:

  • Engineering students preparing to transfer should work closely with an advisor to customize a course of study based on their transfer goals.
  • Students should become familiar with the curriculum at their transfer school of choice and work with an advisor to choose courses that will support that school’s program requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to check with each transfer school in order to determine specific prerequisite courses and equivalencies.
