​Be at the Forefront of Cutting-Edge Technology

The efforts of engineers have an incredibly direct impact in the way we live our daily lives. Think of how often you turn on your computer, tune in to your favorite TV show or depend on your smartphone to keep you connected to the world around you. Imagine life in hospitals before monitoring equipment was introduced and compare that to today's medical centers, which rely on technological advancements to keep us healthy, happy and well. The technology we have come to depend on day in and day out comes from minds like yours.  
 
You can shape the world we live in by pushing the technological envelope. The sky is the limit when it comes to what you can create with a few mathematical and scientific applications. Maybe you will develop the next big gadget tomorrow's generation can't live without. Perhaps you will be the one who discovers a better, faster, cheaper and more efficient way to communicate, heal, power up or power down. Your start as an engineer begins with an affordable education at Broward College.
