Pre-Engineering (PENG)

Description

The Pre-Engineering program provides students with the academic foundation needed for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in engineering science, such as electrical, chemical, civil, mechanical, computer, or environmental engineering.

Students earn an Associate of Science degree and are prepared to enter their bachelor’s degree program with about half of the required credits already completed.

Students must consult with their academic advisor before choosing electives, to ensure that elective courses meet the requirements of the college or university where they plan to complete their bachelor’s degree.

Students must meet the requirements set by the institution they will transfer to. Completing the Pre-Engineering degree does not guarantee acceptance at another college or university.
