Engineering Education Opportunities at OCC


Shedding a light on Science, Technology Engineering, the Arts and Math [STEAM] is at the forefront of the collaboration between C&S Companies and the Museum of Science and Technology. In the spirit of more education geared toward STEAM, Onondaga Community College offers programs that can educate students in many different STEAM careers, including engineering. 

These specific degree programs put students on-track to a career in engineering, Mechanical Technology Professor Mike Grieb said. 

“Our curriculum is tailored around a hands-on approach to a mechanical engineering concept and then with a focus on practical knowledge that lets them [students] go right out and let them have industry jobs that they need,” Mike said.

There are two main paths that the engineering program guides students on. One side is the machining program and the other side is computer aided design. Both can help propel students into the engineering field with jobs that are in-demand right now. 

This degree program opens doors for both people who want to go directly into the workforce and people who want to continue their education and earn related, advanced degrees.

To learn more about this program and other programs available at Onondaga Community College you can join them at their college-wide open house on Saturday, April 13 from 9am to 1pm. To learn more visit
