Academic Program Model

Pre-Engineering (AS.PENG)

This degree is designed for students who do not plan to transfer to the University of Illinois. Students who are planning to transfer to the U of I should see the Engineering Science (AES.ENGR) degree program.

Upon completion of this course sequence, pre-engineering students will receive an associate in science degree. The associate in science degree requires the completion of 64 credit hours. The sample course sequence below includes the required 64 credit hours plus additional courses recommended for this major.

This program follows Math Pathway #4. Math requirements for a specific major may vary from one institution to another. Please consult with an academic counselor or academic advisor to confirm the pathway that is applicable to your major and transfer institution.
