Summer 2014 prerequisite information

Engineering 100 will be offered in both summer and fall 2014. The summer section of ENGR 100 meets M-Th 8:10 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. starting June 16 and ending July 24. Two summer days are roughly equivalent to one week in the fall semester.
Engineering 130 requires completion of Math 130 (trigonometry). The prerequisite can also be satisfied by completion of a comparable course at another college (use the prerequisite equivalency process), by a math placement test score that places you into Math 222, or by a score of 3 or higher on an AP calculus exam (used the alternate placement test form).  High school courses do not satisfy the prerequisite.

Engineering is the art of applying scientific and mathematical principles, experience, judgment, and common sense to make things that benefit people. Engineers design products such as cars, computers, medical equipment, bridges, and robots as well as processes and systems for manufacturing, the clean-up of toxic spills, mass transit, and communications.

The engineering program at College of San Mateo prepares students to transfer into a bachelor's degree program.
Students take a core of math and science classes along with the engineering classes appropriate for their transfer goals.

Engineering at CSM provides:
  • Small class size
  • Faculty dedicated to teaching and advising
  • A start in engineering without the need to declare a specific major
  • Transfer guidance
  • Pre-college work in math, English, and the sciences for students who did not complete,
    or who need a review of, high school work
  • Access to technology programs for supplemental work or as an alternate career path
