Students must also enroll full-time (12 or more semester hours).

Specific course requirements are outlined for intended majors in 13 programs:

      • Aerospace Engineering
      • Agricultural and Biological Engineering
      • Civil and Environmental Engineering
      • Computer Engineering
      • Computer Science

    "I have always wanted to create my own gadgets and code my own programs and web sites. If I am lucky enough to have a successful career, I want to help minorities and people from developing countries like my own to pursue engineering and math degrees. I believe minorities are underrepresented in the science fields and it is very important for diverse perspectives to be involved in the developing of new technology.”

    "The fact that College of DuPage has a direct transfer program into U of I engineering is a testimony to the quality of the Engineering program at COD. The Engineering program at COD is just as good as, if not better than, most four-year institutions."

    "Unlike most universities, the professors I have at COD actually care to hear our input and make sure we understand the material we are learning. Due to this fact, I am having much more academic success than my friends who chose to go to a four-year university."
