Pre Engineering

Pre Engineering

Engineering is an exciting major in terms of professional career opportunities, job satisfaction and compensation. Career options exist in many engineering fields including: Aerospace, Biological, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Irrigation, Manufacturing, Materials, Mechanical and Systems. 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 course work 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. Students can choose from two degree plans. The Associate of Pre- Engineering degree is comprised of those math, science, and engineering courses normally taken by first and second year students in a four year program, along with a small number of general education courses.
