The Department of Chemistry and Physics is able to offer a pre‑engineering program to selected students. Students selected into this program complete two years of a prescribed program at UNC Pembroke. Upon successful completion of this program, these students can transfer into their junior year at one of the engineering schools mentioned below.
Admission to the program is through a formal interview with the Committee on Pre‑engineering. Requests for interviews can be made any time with the departmental secretary. Additional information may be obtained from the chair of the Chemistry and Physics Department.
This two‑year program prepares students for entry into an engineering program at North Carolina A & T University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. However, completion of the UNCP program does not guarantee acceptance into the engineering school at one of these institutions. The student must also satisfy admission requirements for transfer students, and these usually include an acceptable grade point average. Thus, a student should know the admission requirements of the school he or she expects to attend.
