Pre-professional Engineering

Pre-engineering students typically complete two years of physics, math, engineering, and chemistry courses at UW-River Falls. Following two years at UWRF, they apply and transfer to an engineering university of their choice. Most students are able to earn an engineering degree in a total of four years.

However, there are slightly different requirements for various engineering specialties and schools. Therefore, students interested in the program should contact Prof. Rellen Hardtke, pre-engineering advisor, at rellen.hardtke@uwrf.edu or 715-425-4230 for more information.
