The Pre-Engineering certificate will start the student towards a Bachelors of Science degree in Engineering. The certificate coursework concentration is on mathematics, science, English, and introductory engineering courses. The certificate is designed to give students a broad introduction to the engineering profession and includes courses that are typically required for first year engineering students. With assistance from the pre-engineering advisor, students may tailor the courses within the certificate to meet the requirements of a specific engineering program. Upon completion of the certificate, students can transfer into the second year of a four-year engineering program at UAA, UAF, or another school of their choice. Students must earn a grade of C (2.00) or better in all courses to earn the certificate and to ensure that courses will transfer.
