Pre-Professional Engineering ֱ

Entering freshmen and all transfer ֱ in the bachelor of science programs for engineering majors will be admitted directly to the College's preprofessional program as pre-engineering ֱ. The following are required for ֱ to be admitted to their major of choice in the College of Engineering and Computer Science:

  1. Students must meet University admission requirements.
  2. In each core course listed below, ֱ must obtain a minimum grade of “C.” Advanced placement scores of 4 or above will be given credit for the appropriate course(s). A score of 5 is equivalent to an "A," and a score of "4" is equivalent to a "B."
  3. A maximum of two attempts will be allowed for any of the listed courses. Failure to receive a passing grade in the second attempt (including withdrawals) is grounds for denial of admission to an engineering or computer science program.

Pre-Professional Engineering ֱ Core Courses

B.S. in Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical and Ocean Engineering
Calculus with Analytic Geometry 1 MAC 2311 4
General Physics for Engineers 1 PHY 2048 3



B.S. in Geomatics Engineering
Calculus with Analytic Geometry 1 MAC 2311 4

Notes:
(1) MAC 2311 and MAC 2253 are substitutes.
(2) PHY 2043 and PHY 2048 are substitutes.

The entry-level mathematics requirement for the engineering programs is Calculus with Analytic Geometry 1. Students who are placed in lower-level mathematics courses and who need to maintain full-time status, may have problems finding courses that are accepted in an engineering or computer science program in future semesters. This may delay their entry into a particular engineering or computer science program.

After successfully completing the core courses, ֱ may apply to a particular engineering program. Admission will be based on the student's performance in the core courses. The Division of Engineering Student Services and Advising is available to assist ֱ in selection of a major field of study and can be reached at 561-297-2780 or engineering-services@fau.edu .

Students with engineering degrees from ABET accredited institutions will be directly admitted to engineering or computer science programs of their choice.

Students may appeal denial of admission to a major through the academic petition process. For an appeal to have merit, ֱ must explain new academic or personal information as well as extenuating circumstances. The evidence should show a student's case is stronger than the GPA evidence suggests. The faculty coordinator for the preprofessional program will review the petition according to the established College guidelines and make a recommendation to the academic petition committee.
