Undeclared Major with Intended Engineering Interest

The Undeclared major with intended engineering interest is for the student who desires an engineering major but needs additional mathematics preparation before direct entrance into an engineering degree program. Students who successfully complete the requirements to matriculate into an engineering program after two semesters are enrolled into a B.S. program in either Robotics Engineering, Electronics Engineering or Biomedical Engineering in their second year of study. Requirements are outlined in the “Pathway to Engineering Contract for Success” and include advising, tutoring, and achievement of a 2.75 GPA in engineering, math and science courses during their first two semesters.
