Preparing for a Career in Engineering

The University of Minnesota, Morris Pre-Engineering program is a formal arrangement with the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering (UMCSE) in which students attend the Morris campus for at least two years. During this time, they complete core mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, and composition courses that are standard preparatory courses for the UMCSE engineering program. After two or more years, students transfer to UMCSE or another institution to complete their engineering education. Since course requirements vary slightly from one engineering school to another, each student will work closely with a faculty adviser in the selection of both required and elective courses.

The University of Minnesota, Morris offers three Pre-Engineering options.

Bachelor of Science Degree (required time: approximately four years)

Bachelor of Arts & Bachelor of Science Degrees (required time: approximately five years)

Bachelor of Arts & Master of Science (required time: approximately six years)

What kind of Engineering?

Once you've chosen a degree path, you'll need to decide what kind of engineer you want to become. All engineers work to improve the systems that support our communities. But if you like biology, you may want to consider environmental engineering. If you're a fan of computer classes, electrical engineering may be the choice for you. Here's a list of specialties with a brief description of each field, an overview of the areas you'll need to study for each specialty, and a comprehensive worksheet of preparatory courses.
