Transfer Program: This pre-engineering pathway is based upon a mathematics and science core that provides the nucleus for engineering education. Successful completion of this degree allows seamless transfer to engineering programs at University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, University of Bridgeport, University of Hartford, University of New Haven, and the Applied Physics program at Southern Connecticut State University. Students planning to transfer to Fairfield University should choose Engineering Transfer Option: Engineering Science Pathway Program (Fairfield University) (EB16pfu).
Each institution has a minimum GPA requirement for transfer eligibility. For continuation in the engineering program at University of Connecticut, the student must maintain a B or better average with no grade less than a C.
- 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.
