Engineers are in demand in the Rockford-area. Employers are looking for local talent to fill a growing number of jobs. NIU Engineering at RVC is a revolutionary program that lets students earn an ABET-accredited Northern Illinois University bachelor’s degree while attending Rock Valley College at a cost of less than $40,000 for both degrees.
