The classes below are ideal entry level classes for students coming out of high school (or even for rising seniors) who are interested in engineering. There is still time to take your placement tests and enroll, but don’t delay! Contact Kimberly at 540 834 1961 or email kviarella@germanna.edu.

ENGINEERING

EGR 110:  Engineering Graphics has no pre-requisites.  The instructor we have this summer is very experienced and very good.  He will be gone for two weeks near the end of the term, at which point the class will temporarily go online.  We can make the lab and computers available during that time for students who prefer to work on campus.

EGR 120:  Introduction to Engineering has a math pre-requisite that many high school students may have met.  They’ll need to take our placement test, and demonstrate that they are ready for MTH 173, which means they have completed pre-calculus with trigonometry.  That class will be face-to-face all summer, and also has a very good instructor.

COREQUISITE: MTH 164 or PREREQUISITE: Completed MTH 115 or MTH 166

Both classes are required for the Germanna Community College Associate in Science in Engineering, and also transfer to universities.  They would make a good jump-start on an engineering degree whether here or elsewhere.

Love Dogs?

I was asked yesterday, “Mrs. Hummer, what type of career can I have working with dogs?” What a great question. There are many pathways with this one. Making a career choice that you will be happy with is not easy. There are many things to consider before you can really make the right choice for yourself. Of course there are practical matters, such as educational requirements, that should influence the decision you make. However, choosing a career that will allow you to do something you enjoy is very important. Back to dogs! There are many choices available to you that will allow you to combine a career with the love you feel for these wonderful animals!
