Transfer Program: The pre-engineering pathway is based upon a mathematics and science core that provides the nucleus for engineering education. In addition to the 64-hour core of courses listed below, the student must maintain a “B” or better average with no grade less than a “C” for continuation in the engineering program at the University of Connecticut.
Understand the basic principles of the physical sciences.
Perform a scientific experiment and interpret results.
Demonstrate an understanding of the major concepts of differential and integral calculus.
Have the ability to write and document a computer program.
Complete the general education courses in satisfaction of the associate degree requirements.
