Community college students represent a large and often overlooked pool who have the potential to work in engineering careers. More attention must be focused on the community college pathway to engineering careers for underrepresented minority students. NACME's 2010 Community College Transfer Study showed that 21 percent of NACME Scholars have transferred from a two-year community college to a NACME Partner University and that NACME transfer students have a higher grade point average (GPA) than traditional four-year NACME Scholars.
