Engineering StudentPre-engineering Transfer Degree Program

The science and math courses of the Pre-Engineering major will transfer to most four-year institutions.  A student’s class choices should be planned with the requirements of the transfer institution in mind.  See your advisor for enrollment information and transfer institution requirements.

Most students who decide to major in Pre-engineering at a four-year institution will plan a course of study that will lead to an Associate in Science Degree.
