Renewable Materials: Science & Engineering

Associate of Science Degree

Articulated with Oregon State University

Renewable Materials: Science and Engineering OptionProgram Mission

The Science and Engineering option focuses on science, technology and engineering when it comes to working with wood products. Students gain a strong understanding of where wood products come from, and test renewable materials to determine how we can use them in new and innovative ways. Students learn in woodshops, labs and even test materials in our climate rooms and earthquake testing room.

Program Description

The Science & Engineering option is a flexible, math and science intensive option that allows students to design a personalized curriculum that opens doors to jobs that solve complex problems, create efficiencies, and foster intelligent use of renewable materials.

Program Outcomes

This UCC program aligns with the programs offered through the OSU College of Forestry Program. UCC students that complete the Renewable Materials: Science and Engineering AS degree in Forestry will have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to:

  1. Demonstrate ability to find, compile, analyze and communicate technical information in a concise format
  2. Demonstrate basic knowledge of wood and similar renewable materials that make them challenging to utilize as industrial and building materials
  3. Understand the source of wood products and how they are utilized
  4. The ability to solve complex problems and create efficiencies for the application of renewable materials

Why UCC?

why-uccThe freshman and sophomore years at most universities are designated pre-engineering, with the junior and senior years designated professional engineering. Many of the transfer courses during the first two years of study are math, science and elective courses. At UCC, you can take the required core courses in smaller classroom settings and at lower cost than at four-year institutions. The Associate of Science (AS) degree is awarded once all required courses, electives and general education requirements are successfully completed.
