ROCKFORD — Engineers are in demand in the Rockford-area. Employers are looking for local talent to fill a growing number of jobs. NIU Engineering at RVC is a revolutionary program that lets students earn an ABET-accredited Northern Illinois University bachelor’s degree while attending Rock Valley College at a cost of less than $40,000 for both degrees.
Rock Valley College and Northern Illinois University are hosting fall information sessions for prospective students and parents who want to learn more about the NIU Engineering @ RVC.
The sessions will be held Wednesday, Oct. 17 and Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. each night at the Woodward Technology Center (WTC) on RVC’s main campus (3301 North Mulford Road).
Attendees at these sessions will hear from engineering professionals, students and program staff on engineering careers, courses, internships and mentors, admission requirements, and financial assistance. Admissions representatives will be on site to help students who wish to apply for the program, and students will save $40 when applying at one of these events.
