Pre-Engineering


The University provides a pre-engineering program which introduces the student to the highly technical training necessary for all phases of the engineering profession. This is a two-year course of study which enables the student to transfer to another school to complete his or her degree work. Transfer schools have included: Lehigh, Bucknell, Penn State and Drexel.

Generally, different engineering programs have slightly different requirements which must be completed before starting the junior year. These will vary from school to school. Therefore, students should, before beginning the sophomore year, consult with an advisor at the institution at which they plan to complete their studies.
