Prospective Students - Admissions
Engineers solve problems by relying on their creative and academic skills. You should enjoy problem solving and be challenged by the effort it requires. While in high school you should take the following courses:
|Mathematics||Science||Languages, Arts, & Social Sciences|
|Algebra I & II (required)
Calculus (if available)
Computer Programming or Applications
|English (4 units required)
Foreign Languages (2-3 units)
Social Studies (2 units required)
Fine Arts/Humanities (1-2 units)
For engineering, advanced placement or honors level courses in high school are recommended. Combined SAT scores of 1110 (Math & Reading only) and graduation in the top 20% of your high school class, with no grades less than a “B” should be your goal.
How to Apply

Undeclared Engineering Program
If you think you want to be an engineer, but are not sure which field….no problem. In the Undeclared Engineering program, you will start off with a series of courses that will count no matter which engineering program you ultimately choose. In addition, you will take a course in the first semester that, along with introducing you to college life, will give you an overview of all of the engineering and engineering technology programs we offer. As long as you are able to decide by the end of the first year, you will be able to progress towards the degree of your choice at a normal pace.
