How do I change my major to engineering?
Students in other majors on campus must meet the following criteria to be eligible to enter the College of Engineering as a PR-ENGIN major.:
- Academic good standing
- GPA of 2.0 or better
- C or better in Math 131, EnglWr 112 and either Chem 111 or Physics 151
You must apply and be admitted to the College no later than your fourth semester at the University. Use a Change of major form only upon meeting eligibility criteria above.
Change of majors are processed at the end of each semester, after grades have been finalized by the Registrar’s Office.
If you are interested in declaring your major into the College of Engineering please attend one of the following sessions. These sessions will provide information about becoming an Engineering major, and will provide advising on courses for the upcoming semester.
Campus Center Room 803
Wednesday, Sept 6th 5:30PM –
Computer Systems, Electrical, and Chemical Engineering
Thursday, Sept 7th 5:30PM –
Civil, Industrial, and Mechanical Engineering
If you cannot attend the meeting where your intended major is listed, please attend the other!
I am a PR-ENGIN. How do I get into my engineering major?
Each engineering department has specific criteria for admission:
* Physics 151 (4 credits) for students who entered the University after June 2010.
**Chem 111 and Chem 112 may be satisfied by taking the Honors equivalents: Chem 121H and Chem 122H.
- For majors that require a C or better in the above courses, a C- or lower is not sufficient to satisfy the requirement.
- Intro to Engineering courses (110, 111, 112, and 113) are interchangeable for admission to majors. For example, if a student takes Engin 110 (Intro to Chemical Engineering) and then decides to major in Civil Engineering, he/she does not need to take Engin 111.
