Engineering (Pre)

Transfer - Associate in Science

Program Overview

Engineering (Pre)

Do you want to be an engineer? Delta is a great place to take your first classes toward a bachelor's degree in engineering.

You'll learn the fundamentals in small classes with fantastic instructors. When you're ready to transfer to complete your degree, you will be ready!

Pre-engineering students take core curriculum, math, science and engineering courses to prepare them for transfer into an engineering major. Pre-engineering students may transfer into an engineering program once they have completed the required coursework and meet the admissions requirements for pre-engineering students (see admissions requirements).  Pre-engineering students are assigned a dedicated academic advisor who will assist them with everything they need to complete pre-engineering requirements and transition into an engineering major.
