Pre Engineering (PREN)

Advisor

Promod Pratap, Associate Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy

The following two-year pre-engineering curriculum offers preparation for students who plan to transfer to engineering programs in other institutions. This program has been approved by the Subcommittee on Engineering Transfer for transfer to the engineering programs at North Carolina A & T State University, North Carolina State University, and The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Students interested in engineering should contact one of the advisors above as soon as possible.

See the designated General Education requirements and approved course listings. Recommended are a beginning course in literature, history (200 level), history or philosophy of science, and communications (CST 105). Some engineering programs require proficiency in a foreign language through the level of the first year (101–102). Students should make appropriate selections after consultation with an advisor. More information may be found on the Web at www.uncg.edu/phy/preengineering/preeng.htm.
