Undergraduate Engineering

Admissions

First-time freshmen admitted to the university will be admitted to the College of Engineering with an engineering classification provided that they: 

  1. Have completed appropriate courses in algebra and trigonometry or equivalent advanced placement to qualify for registration in a first course in calculus (e.g., MATH 2111).
  2. Satisfy all other university admission standards.
  3. Attend an engineering orientation (offered in conjunction with the new student orientations).

Pre-Engineering

First-time freshmen admitted to the University that are not eligible for direct entry into engineering may enter into the college with a pre-engineering classification provided that they:

  1. Qualify for or have credit for a calculus-based algebra course (e.g., MATH 1125).
  2. Have a composite GPA/ MATH ACT score (GPA/MATH ACT score= high school GPA*10 + MATH ACT score) of 53 or higher. (Math SAT scores will be converted to an ACT equivalent score.)
  3. Satisfy all other university admission standards.
  4. Attend an engineering orientation (offered in conjunction with the new student orientations).

This pre-engineering classification begins with the letter ā€œPā€ (e.g., pre-electrical engineering is PENEE). While classified as a pre-engineering student, he or she will not be allowed to take engineering courses (i.e., ENCE, ENEE, ENME, ENGR, and NAME courses) above the 1000 level. Students remain in this classification until they are eligible for a first course in calculus AND have a cumulative PRE-ENG GPA of 2.25 or higher. (The PRE-ENG GPA includes (1) all coursework that counts toward the engineering degree AND (2) all math coursework that is pre-requisite to MATH 2111.)

Only first-time freshmen can enter into the college with a pre-engineering classification. If a student does not qualify for entry into the college, he or she may transfer into the college with an engineering classification once he or she is eligible for calculus and has a cumulative GPA of at least 2.25.
