Hayward's Chabot College Engineering Instructor Bruce Mayer announced that 13 of his engineering students from last year have earned transfer acceptance to four-year colleges, including five students who were accepted by the University of California at Berkeley and 22 total acceptances by the UC system.
"I'm preparing my students to succeed not just at Chabot but to earn degrees at prestigious institutions such as UC Berkeley and UCLA. During my time at Chabot, more than 170 students have transferred to university engineering programs, including 46 to UC Berkeley," Mayer said.
Chabot College's Engineering program alumni have written to Mayer, crediting his teaching and mentorship as the foundation for their success.
"I graduated from UC Berkeley and am now work as a Process Engineer. I just want to say 'thank you' for all your help while I was at Chabot. I will never forget that it was because of you that I secured my first internship and had my first taste of research and learned more about science and engineering. Thank you once again," wrote one former student.
The Associate in Science degree in Engineering is designed to provide the foundation for subsequent transfer to a CSU or UC Engineering program. The core courses fulfill most of the lower division requirements for the majority of CSU and UC engineering majors. The Associate in Science degree puts students on a transfer path and ensures they develop a strong foundation in engineering, mathematics and the sciences.
Students should note that transfer-course requirements vary among universities and majors in the different branches of engineering. Students seeking to transfer with an engineering major are strongly advised to consult with Chabot College Counseling.
