The Pre-Engineering program requires additional study at an engineering school such as Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University, the University of Memphis, the University of Tennessee, or Vanderbilt University in order to obtain an engineering degree. Depending upon the program chosen, the student will complete two or three* years of the curricula shown below at MTSU. Students should consult their advisors and an advisor at the school to which they want to transfer concerning specific information on acceptance/transfer of the courses listed below to the engineering school of their choice. Information on the pre-engineering program in agricultural engineering can be found under the School of Agriculture.
Following is a printable, suggested four-year schedule of courses:
*Additional classes are available to juniors based on which school they are planning to attend. For example, MTSU offers a wide variety of engineering courses that may be available to third-year pre-engineering students. Students wanting to stay for a third year and take these courses may do so, but they must consult their advisors in advance.
Students should consult their advisors each semester to plan their schedules.
Standard Four-Year Engineering Program
This program will require four years to complete. The student is required to take the freshman and sophomore years indicated above and then transfer to an engineering school. The engineering school would then require two years of additional study to complete requirements toward the degree.
The pre-engineering program at MTSU has been closely coordinated with several engineering schools. A student who elects to transfer should confer with his or her faculty advisor two semesters prior to transfer.
