The UCC Forest Engineering program prepares students for transfer to the bachelor’s degree at Oregon State University (OSU). The curriculum is intended to meet the requirements for the first two years of course work necessary for application to the Forest Engineering professional program at OSU. Students can also take additional courses at UCC for transfer to the dual Civil and Forest Engineering program at OSU.
Students that finish the coursework will complete at UCC with a two-year AS degree. The two-year degree may also provide a direct career pathway to employment as a Forest Technician or Engineering Technician.
UCC also offers related degrees in Forest Operations, Forest Management and Natural Resources. Please contact the program advisor for more information.

The 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.
Prospective students should visit Advising and Career Services to get started and then see a program advisor (below) to develop a more focused educational plan.
