No matter what branch of engineering a student wishes to enter, the program for the first four semesters contains mostly the same basic courses. These include mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, English, history, and behavioral and social sciences. The pre-engineering program at ECU allows students to fill these requirements in two years, after which they transfer to a university with an engineering school to take advanced courses in their area of specialization. Advisors customize students’ curriculum to match the engineering school they plan to attend. This enables them to enjoy the small classes, personalized instruction, and friendly atmosphere at ECU while receiving an excellent academic foundation for further study.

Note: There are no separate degree check-sheets or plans currently available for this program.
