As an admit in the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) , you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a vibrant learning community, engage with distinguished faculty members, and participate in cutting-edge research and projects.

How We Support You:

  • A key part of success in Engineering is building a strong math and science foundation to progress in the rigorous CECS curriculum. Math Placement (if required)* will guide your course enrollment and could require participation in activities such as seminars, tutoring and other support designed to help guide you on your path to graduation. You will continue to be advised by our START Program and transition to the college once you have completed Pre-Calculus (Math 105) with a C- grade or higher.
  • The Engineering Learning Center includes a variety of services and programs such as free tutoring, boot-camps, exam preparation, success coaching, and guided study sessions.
  • You will have access to a variety of engineering laboratories (such as our state-of-the-art Engineering Lab Building) and equipment as part of your courses to test, apply, and practice what you are learning.
  • You can take advantage of nearly two dozen clubs, teams, and professional organizations that will challenge you to problem solve, make connections, and prepare you for a fulfilling career in engineering.
  • We are committed to providing you with access to research to enhance your education, and impact your future career goals. 

*Math Placement Test is required unless we receive confirmation of:

  • High School GPA of 3.5 or higher AND an SAT of 1200 (ACT of 25) or higher
  • SAT/ACT Scores with a SAT math section score of 620 or higher or ACT math score of 26 or higher
  • AP Calculus Exam with a score of 3, 4, or 5
  • IB Mathematics Exam with a 5 or higher on an IB Mathematics SL exam or a 4 or higher on an IB Mathematics HL or HL Further exam
  • Completed at least Pre-Calculus with a C grade or higher

Before Fall 2024, students applying to a major in CECS were either directly admitted to their major or placed in a pre-engineering track. However, as of Fall 2024, all students are admitted directly into their major, eliminating the pre-engineering placement option. Here's how students were placed prior to Fall 2024:
