“What I like the most about the engineering program at TMCC is that I can challenge myself without pressure or fear to make mistakes. Since the classes are small, it is more specialized; therefore, the instructors give more attention to students. What also makes this program special is that the faculty and staff are very caring and understanding, teachers show interest regarding the student’s academic progress, and the International Student Services Department is also very supportive when it comes to helping you succeed and stay on track to achieve your goals”.
