Home > Pre-Engineering

The Pre-Engineering program can be a great stepping stone whether you want to be an electrical, mechanical, civil, computer or any other engineer. This program provides a strong foundation in science, mathematics and engineering. Special emphasis is placed on qualitative and quantitative analytical skills necessary in engineering while working in a team environment. There will also be material covered that deals with the applied aspects of science in engineering. Students will get direct experience with industry leading software such as Multisim for electrical circuit simulation and MATLAB for mathematical modeling.

Our Graduates

The Associate of Science in Pre-Engineering at Ivy Tech is a transfer single articulation pathways (TSAP) program that provides a clear pathway for graduates to transfer to a four-year institution to obtain a bachelor’s degree. To learn more about our TSAP programs, and how they can save you money, visit our TSAP page.

Transfer Partners

Almost all graduates of the Pre-Engineering program transfer to a four-year university to continue their education. If you would like to continue your education after completing your Ivy Tech degree, we have several four-year transfer partnerships in place.
