Students who do not meet the criteria to be directly admitted into the College of Engineering can go through the pre-engineering program.

During the program

  • Students follow their major’s course of study and participate in all activities organized by the College.
  • They interact closely with their assigned academic advisors.
  • They enroll in coursework that will apply to engineering and help them keep their academic options flexible.
    • This allows students to select best-fit majors, minors, undergraduate research areas and potential graduate programs.


Pre-engineering students are eligible to transfer into the College of Engineering when they:

  • Complete 24 credit hours
  • Have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA
  • Have at least a 2.0 GPA for their final semester as a pre-engineering student
  • Receive a C- or better in Calculus I (Math 1500)

Once admitted to the College, students will work with a new academic adviser in their chosen program of study until they graduate.
