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.
