Get into Pro School

Students studying outside

What is Pro School?

  • Once admitted to the university all 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 competitive and meeting the minimum application requirements does not guarantee admission to the Professional Program (Pro School).
  • All 300 and 400 level coursework is completed while in Pro School, during the junior and senior years 
  • Admission to Pro School is for Fall or Winter terms. If you are doing MECOP, Fall term admission is required
