Plan Your Engineering Education

The path to a successful engineering career begins with careful planning to gain the right skills. Learn more about the skills needed for a career in engineering and find engineering programs and training options.




Minnesota State offers a variety of engineering programs.  Both online and in-person options are available.  Use the Campus & Program search to find engineering programs at Minnesota State colleges and universities.  To find engineering programs, select the "Search Programs" button.  You can find relevant programs in the Engineering and Engineering Technologies and the Information Technology categories. You will be able to FILTER RESULTS by the type of Degree/Award and Location.  Use the MAP view to find programs near you.

You may also want to learn about the types of degrees that transfer from a two-year program to a four-year major.  If you plan to transfer, it is important to know which degree path is right for you.  Not all two-year college programs are intended to transfer to a four-year bachelor's degree.  Talk to a transfer specialist early to make sure that you enroll in the right program.  

Other Types of Training

Certifications are credentials showing that you have mastered a specific skill or technology.  Having a certification can make you more competitive in the job market.  The CareerOneStop Certification Finder will help you find certifications for transportation occupations.  Either search for an occupation you're interested in by keyword or select "Professional and technical services" from the List of Industries to find certifications related to "Architectural and Engineering Services." 


Vouchers and Training Funds
You may qualify for state or federal dislocated worker training funds. To find out if you qualify, contact a counselor at CareerForce online or at any of the CareerForce locations in Minnesota.
