Skills & InterestProblem Solving

CareersScience & Engineering

  • Students examining an equation.
  • Engineering students working with a machine.

Why choose program or class?

Completing the first two years of study at Chemeketa will save you thousands of dollars in tuition.

Chemeketa offers classes that closely follow the first two years of engineering study at many universities. We also have related classes in General Engineering that introduce the profession, tools and approach to problem solving.
