Pre-professional Programs

Pre-professional Engineering

As a pre-engineering student, you would typically complete two years of physics, math, engineering, and chemistry courses at UWRF. Then you would apply and transfer to an engineering university of your choice. Most students are able to earn an engineering degree in four years.

However, there are slightly different requirements for various engineering specialties and schools, and we recommend that you contact Rellen Hardtke or call the Physics Department (715-425-3235) for more information.
