OU, SCCCC agreement targets engineering majors
On July 18, officials from Oakland University and St. Clair County Community College (SCCCC) signed an agreement that will allow students to enter bachelor’s degree programs in OU’s School of Engineering and Computer Science with junior standing, after completing their first two years at SCCCC.
|Virinder Moudgil, OU's vice president for Academic Affairs and provost, and Gus Demas, provost at St. Clair County Community College, announced in June a partnership for engineering majors. |
“This agreement is yet another example of how Oakland University is forging partnerships to advance higher education across the state of Michigan. By allowing students from St. Clair County to begin their computer science and engineering education close to home, we are broadening access to these important fields of study,” said Oakland University Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost Virinder Moudgil.
The OU/SCCCC agreement outlines a four-year program in which the freshman and sophomore years are completed at SCCCC, and the junior and senior years are completed at OU. Students admitted to the OU/SCCCC program by St. Clair County Community College who successfully complete the first two years of the program are automatically enrolled as juniors at OU.
OU/SCCCC students may enter any of the following bachelor of science degree-granting programs at Oakland University: computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial and systems engineering, information technology, mechanical engineering, engineering physics and engineering chemistry.
