Cañada College has a fully accredited Engineering transfer program. This lower-division program consists of the same courses offered at any four-year college or university at a substantially lower cost, taught by a faculty with considerable industrial experience. Virtually all our Engineering students have subsequently obtained their degrees at a four-year college or university and have entered the Engineering profession. The College has articulation agreements with engineering departments of UC, CSU and independent colleges and universities.
