Pre-Engineering Program

This program is not accepting new students for the upcoming semester.

Degrees Offered:
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)


The Pre-Engineering Program at Barton College provides the science and math foundation that enables students to succeed in an engineering program. The student planning to apply to an engineering program would complete the three-year Pre-Engineering Program at Barton College and then transfer to an approved institution. Upon completion of at least two additional years in another institution’s engineering program, the student would receive a degree in engineering from that institution and be awarded a degree in mathematics from Barton College.

Course Information

At Barton College, the Pre-Engineering student will complete at least 92 semester hours, including the general education core requirements, before transferring to an engineering institution. The Pre-Engineering Program course requirements include the following courses:

  • General College Chemistry I & II
