Pre-Engineering

Are you interested in pursuing a career in engineering but also desire to receive a Christian education? SBU's unique pre-engineering program is a great fit for you.

Pre-Engineering tracks

Regardless of the type of engineering you wish to pursue, we will work with you to develop an academic plan to help you achieve your goals.

3+2 Option

Spend three years at SBU studying physics and completing your general education and pre-engineering required courses. You will then continue on at an engineering school of your choice to complete an engineering degree in subjects such as aerospace, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, geological, mechanical, nuclear or petroleum engineering.

With this unique arrangement you will graduate from both SBU with a physics degree and  graduate from an engineering school with an engineering degree.

Physics Major

2+2 option

Spend two years as a pre-engineering student at SBU and be equipped to then complete your engineering degree at the engineering school of your choice. Study within our Department of Chemistry and Physics to prepare for degrees such as chemical engineering, civil engineering, geological engineering, and more. Study within our Department of Computer and Information Sciences to prepare for a degree in computer engineering.

4+2 Option

Complete a bachelor's degree at SBU (typically done in four years) and then proceed to an engineering school to complete a master's degree (typically done in two years) in a specialized engineering area. You can complete your bachelor's degree at SBU in subjects such as computer science, chemistry, and mathematics and work with an academic advisor one-on-one to ensure you satisfy all prerequisites for graduate school. Taking this path will allow you to receive your bachelor's degree from an institution of Christian higher education while also being equipped to quickly complete a graduate level program, which will increase your career opportunities.
