What I like most about SVCC
SVCC is dedicated to helping individuals achieve their goals in education and in life. What I find most gratifying is the opportunity to facilitate problem-solving and concept building with students on an individual level. This close personal interaction between student and instructor has resulted in remarkable success stories at 4-year schools and in future careers for SVCC's physics and engineering graduates.
Other
So many companies in the United States cannot find enough engineers or physicists. The physics courses offered at SVCC provide students with an unparalleled foundation with which to take advantage of these waiting job opportunities.
