The pre-engineering program is designed as a cooperative undertaking between
Alcorn State University and other universities having fully accredited
engineering programs. This program requires students to earn approved credit
hours at Alcorn and acquire the additional required courses by transferring to
cooperating institutions. Students who choose not to transfer may continue their
studies and complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology (or
Computer Networking and Information Technology). Designed for students who did
not complete engineering prep courses in high school, this program leads to a
Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering at cooperating institutions and will
also prepare students to enter the junior year at institutions that offer a
Bachelor of Science degree in the following majors.
Civil Engineering Technology
Computer Engineering Technology
Upon completion of the course work, students will transfer to an engineering degree granting institution and choose an engineering discipline as a major. The pre-engineering program at Alcorn State University prepares students to enroll in majors listed above and closely related disciplines. Students should expect to complete their degrees in five academic years.
