WHY WORK FOR RC ENGINEERING? From its earliest days, the City of Rancho Cucamonga was dubbed the "City with a Plan" and over the past forty years, we have been creating a World Class Community. So, what does this have to do with engineering? Everything! Engineering is more than simply building and maintaining roads, it's about providing the built environment that is the context for the people and the places of our lives. As we move into our fifth decade as a City, we are continuing to build a World Class Community for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. One that takes the best parts of our past and continues growing and reimagining itself for the future. We are excited to have the opportunity to play a big part in what is coming next for our community. Whether it is through high quality design and construction of the built environment, by ensuring that our environment stays clean and sustainable, or by providing reliable utility services to residents and businesses.
