The Pre-Engineering Program offers students a broad overview of the various fields of engineering including: chemical, civil, petroleum, environmental, electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial. It also provides a dynamic, activity-based, interactive learning environment that inspires ingenuity and creativity. Students who plan to pursue an engineering degree or take advanced math and science courses in college will benefit from the curriculum taught in this program. Due to the accelerated pace and increased rigor of the advanced math and science courses, students entering the Pre-Engineering Program should be hard-working and highly motivated to be successful.
