Pre Engineering


Welcome to Alcorn State University Pre-Engineering Program. The program is dedicated to providing programs that encourage young and under-represented students to pursue careers in engineering. Our program is the only one of its kind in the State of Mississippi.

Engineers are the link between scientific discovery and practical application. They analyze problems and develop design solutions. They may work with a variety of professionals including scientists, technologists, business managers, doctors, lawyers, and government officials, etc. They should be able to work as members of a team, have an aptitude for mathematics, science, and have a capacity for detail.

The Pre-Engineering Program allows students to complete the first two years of an engineering curriculum at Alcorn and upon transfer, complete an engineering degree at any fully accredited engineering institutions/programs. Pre-Engineering students take their courses in sciences, humanities, and fundamentals of engineering at Alcorn before transferring to a selected accredited college/school of engineering. After transferring, and depending on the college/school of engineering chosen, some additional prerequisite coursework may be needed. Each pre-engineering student usually takes about seventy-six credits at Alcorn, and is assisted by an academic advisor in the selection of an appropriate program of study, in the choice of a college/school of engineering, as well as the transfer process.
