Engineers employ the theory and principles of science and mathematics to the economical solution of practical technical problems. They design machinery, products, systems, and processes for efficient and economical performance. Also, many engineers design, plan, and supervise the construction of buildings, highways, and transit systems. Most engineers specialize in one of more than 25 major specialties recognized by professional societies.

Engineers in each specialization have knowledge and training that can be applied to many fields. They often use computers to simulate how a machine, structure, or system operates. Many engineers work in laboratories, industrial plants, or construction sites where they inspect, supervise, or solve onsite problems. Others work in an office almost all the time.

The Gogebic Community College engineering curriculum is designed to provide the general education courses that are required to transfer to a university for bachelor's degree completion.
