Recommended Course Sequence
The mission of the Pre-Engineering major at Anderson University is to provide students a foundational understanding of Engineering principles in order to prepare them for transfer to Clemson University, where they will complete their Engineering degree.
This major is a “3 +” (Dual-Degree) program in association with Clemson. Students will complete the requirements for three academic years at Anderson University, including the General Education courses, and will then transfer to Clemson for the remaining courses to satisfy the requirements for the Engineering major. Clemson recommends that the prospective student attend summer school at Clemson following the Junior year at AU. Upon completion of this program, the student will receive an engineering degree from Clemson and a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Engineering degree from AU.
Students participating in this program must complete a form entitled, “Intention to Pursue the Dual-Degree Program at Clemson University” and send it to the Associate Dean of Engineering in the College of Engineering at Clemson University. Formal application for admission to Clemson University should be made during the Fall semester of the third year at AU. Students completing the program should apply for graduation at both institutions for the term they expect to complete all requirements at Clemson University.
The sequence below is suggested based on the general requirements of the Engineering degrees at Clemson. Students should consult the specific requirements of their chosen Engineering major at Clemson in order to determine the best course of study at Anderson University.
No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
