The United States has been the number one study abroad destination for many years, and with over one million international students, remains the number one destination for international students due to the quality academic programs and international recognition. The United States has some of the best engineering programs in the world.
The international recognition of a US higher education is not only valuable to gain employment globally, but the experience of studying in the United States is unlike any other experience. The people on our ECC campus are friendly, the students are inclusive, and the beauty of the United States is incredible. Studying in the US is also a great way to improve your English language skills while experiencing American culture.
Not only is an engineering degree an in-demand degree and easy to find employment, but ECC offers a Guaranteed Transfer Admission (GTA) program to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Grainger College of Engineering for students who meet specific criteria. Taking advantage of this opportunity helps save on tuition costs and benefit from Elgin Community College's smaller class sizes and highly personalized academic transfer planning.
Elgin Community College has over 72 university partnerships which makes it easy for students to complete a bachelor's degree and save money. Having an affordable option makes a US higher education accessible to more international students. More students can complete their academic objectives, which means more students benefit from the career prospects that come with the recognition and knowledge of a US college degree.
