Transfer as a junior to University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Illinois Institute of Technology, and other top engineering schools.
Wright College offers world-class engineering and computer science courses that help students earn an associate in engineering degree and then move on to top engineering programs at four-year universities through guaranteed admission transfer pathways.
The future leaders of the field start their studies at Wright and end up working at places like Google, Microsoft, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, 3M, and more.
If you have the desire to work in engineering or computer science, Wright has the high-quality classes, intentional support, and institutional connections to help you grow here and go anywhere.
2023 Example of Excelencia Winner
The Wright College Engineering Pathways Program has been named a 2023 Example of Excelencia for its intentional, culturally relevant, evidence-based practices tailored to Latinx students and their communities.
Students and alumni from Wright College’s Engineering and Computer Science program have participated in research, internships, advanced their education and careers, and discovered professional opportunities at places like:
- University of Illinois Grainger College of Engineering
- Illinois Institute of Technology Armour College of Engineering
- Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering
- University of Chicago
- University of Illinois at Chicago
- Princeton University
- Southern Illinois University
- Argonne National Laboratory
- Chicago Mercantile Exchange
- Northrup Grumman
- Chicago Quantum Exchange
Wright College engineering students talk about why they love the program:
“I wouldn’t have gotten into the program at UIUC without the program at Wright College.”
“The summer Bridge Program helped me bridge any gaps I had in math while also paying me.”
“The calculus, physics, and algebra classes made me more prepared than some of my classmates [at Columbia University].”
“Those opportunities really opened doors for me.”
