LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE PARTNERSHIPS

MCC – UMKC Collaborative Engineering Program

Metropolitan Community College and the School of Computing and Engineering at UMKC have teamed up to form the Collaborative Engineering Program (CEP). Participation in CEP is a great way to pursue quality education that’s affordable.

Here’s how it works. Students start in the Associate in Engineering or Associate in Computer Science at MCC. While pursuing their associate degree, students will co-enroll in a few select courses at UMKC. Once the associate’s degree requirements are completed, students will then come to UMKC to finish their bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Computer Science.

What are the benefits?

  • Two Degrees: Students who complete the plan will earn associate and bachelor degrees.
  • Affordability: The combination of MCC’s low tuition rates and UMKC scholarships means students can save thousands of dollars.
  • Seamless Transfer: There’s no guesswork on how your classes will transfer because we have worked out all of the details in advance.
  • More Resources: Take advantage of the academic support, student groups, and career programming offered at both schools.

Let us know you’re interested in the Collaborative Engineering Program by completing this interest form.
