The College of Lake County engineering transfer department will hold an information session at 7 p.m. Monday, April 15, for prospective students interested in taking the first two years of a Bachelor of Science in engineering degree at CLC and learning more about transfer agreements with multiple engineering programs.

The sessions will be offered in the new Baxter Innovation Lab in Room T120 on CLC's Grayslake Campus. Before the session, a lab open house will take place from 5-7 p.m. and will include tours, hands-on activities and demonstrations. Parents are also invited to attend the open house and information session.

The 45-minute session will include information about the CLC engineering transfer curriculum and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign College of Engineering Pathways program, which offers guaranteed admission after successfully completing two years at CLC.

Additionally, guaranteed admission agreements with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, University of Illinois-Chicago and Northern Illinois University will be explained, along with other transfer opportunities.

The first two years of any engineering curriculum are common, allowing "pre-engineering" majors to start at CLC and transfer to any engineering field and enjoy considerable savings, according to Professor Rob Twardock, engineering department chair.

"With the average four-year public university tuition at $15,000-$20,000 per year, plus room and board of $10,000-$12,000, engineering students can save about $25,000 per year by starting at CLC. We offer small classes taught by professors who are professional engineers," he said.
