Kingwood and Montgomery Colleges Engineer Cooperation

Published on: October 10, 2007

Dr. David Wooten, Dr. Miguel Cáceres and others have helped create a program of cooperation in the math departments between Kingwood and Lone Star College–Montgomerys. These two schools are the only institutions in the Lone Star College System (Lone Star College System), which offer courses in math for students interested in transferring to a four-year college who wish to pursue an engineering career.

According to Dr. Cáceres, "These courses will transfer to many colleges. Without a doubt, the credits will transfer to Texas A&M or the University of Houston because of articulation agreements between the schools."

The two schools are trying to arrange their schedules so that each of the courses will be offered by only one college at a time. This agreement by the Lone Star College System Engineering Curriculum Team will offer the following schedule of classes:

ENGR 1304 - Foundations of Engineering I (Engineering Graphics with AutoCAD) will be offered in spring of 2008 by Lone Star College-Kingwood and in fall of 2008 by Lone Star College–Montgomery.

ENGR 1305 - Foundations of Engineering II (Engineering Problem with C) will be offered in spring of 2008 by Lone Star College–Montgomery and in fall of 2008 by Lone Star College-Kingwood.

The Lone Star College System is among the largest and fastest growing community college districts in Texas. It comprises Lone Star College-North Harris, Lone Star College-Kingwood, Lone Star College–Tomball, Lone Star College–Montgomery, Lone Star College–CyFair, six satellite centers and The University Center.
