Pre-Engineering

This program is housed in the Department of Physics. A student may apply to a college of engineering after completing two years in a pre-engineering program. Pre-engineering students are encouraged to choose a college of engineering as soon as possible so that the pre-engineering program at Lewis can be planned effectively. Colleges of engineering expect a student to maintain at least a 3.00 GPA during their pre-engineering program. Most colleges of engineering recommend the sequence of courses listed below.
