Most colleges of engineering accept students into their programs only after they have successfully completed a pre-engineering course of study. This usually takes the first two or three years of a student’s college career, and can be done at  CWU. Then the student must transfer to the engineering school of his or her choice and apply for admission to the particular engineering program wanted. S/he will graduate from that college and therefore must satisfy its requirements.

The course requirements in engineering vary considerably for different fields of engineering and for various colleges of engineering. The most important step a pre-engineering student can take is to consult the catalog of the particular college of engineering the student hopes to attend and then to plan a program at CWU to satisfy as many specific requirements of that college as possible. Students whose plans are not definite are advised to follow the typical first-year program outlined below and have a firm choice of an engineering program by the beginning of their second year. The pre-engineering advisor can assist you in these matters.

Students selecting this program must have completed a full year of high school calculus, or have a satisfactory score on the Math Placement Test Form PC, which is given by the mathematics department, or MATH 154. These are prerequisites to MATH 172.

The physics department also offers a Bachelor of Science, physics major - engineering, in which the student receives degrees in physics and engineering. Consult the physics department chair, or pre-engineering advisors for additional information about this program.
