Students studying outside

Students enter the College of Engineering as pre-engineering professionals. You are accepted into the major once you have completed the pre-engineering professional coursework

  • Each student must complete the pre-engineering professional coursework and meet the minimum application requirements to apply and be admitted into the professional engineering program (Pro School).
  • Admission to Pro School is for Summer, Fall, and Winter terms.
  • See the College of Engineering Policy Manual for details of applying to Pro School.

Why a Pre/Pro School system?

  • A Pre/Pro system guarantees that spots are available in upper-division courses for all Pro students. Once in Pro school, students enjoy the luxury of always finding available space in CS and ECE courses.
  • Because of the difficult tasks and stress associated with upper-division courses, the EECS department wants to make sure that students are well prepared and capable of handling the difficult challenges.
