Having recently earned accreditation from the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE), RCBC stands as the first college in New Jersey to gain this distinction. ATMAE supports the development of leadership, innovation and management skills through technologists and the applied engineering workforce.

At RCBC, students can engage in associate degree pathways, as well as a bachelor’s degree option through our 3+1 program which allows students to earn their degree for the same cost most 4-year colleges charge for a single year.
