Requirements

The pre-engineering program at UVU has been created for students who plan to complete the first two to three years of their engineering education at UVU and then transfer to a baccalaureate university to complete their engineering degree. With adequate planning, pre-engineering coursework completed at UVU will transfer to all of the Utah universities with baccalaureate engineering degrees. All students who declare pre-engineering as their major are automatically accepted into pre-engineering status. After completion of the pre-engineering program at UVU, the student applies for professional status at an institution of the student’s choice.
