Pre-Engineering & Dual-Engineering Programs

Pre-Engineering Program

  • A student entering the pre-engineering program concentrates the first two years on completing basic courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry and humanities. At the conclusion of the second year, the student transfers to the engineering school of choice to complete the B.S. degree in engineering. A suggested curriculum follows the curricula for mathematics majors.

Dual-Degree Engineering Programs

  • UM currently has dual-degree program agreements with the engineering colleges of Auburn University, University of Alabama at Birmingham, and University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. In three years at UM, a student in one of these programs completes 102 semester hours, which include all of UM’s general education requirements and all course requirements of the B.S. degree in mathematics. After successful completion of those three years, the student transfers to the engineering college of his or her choice. Those universities offer the following areas of concentration:

    • Auburn: aerospace, agricultural, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, materials, mechanical or textile;
    • UAB: civil, electrical, materials or mechanical; and
    • UAT: aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical (computer engineering option available), industrial, mechanical, metallurgical or computer science.

    Upon successful completion of study of a specific engineering curriculum, the student is awarded two degrees: a B.S. in Engineering and a B.S. in Mathematics from UM. Students interested in a dual-degree program should contact Dr. Hope for details.
