The Department of Physics and Astronomy houses two Pre-Engineering programs and two Dual-Degree programs with Auburn University and Clemson University. The checksheets for Auburn University Dual Degree Program and Clemson University Dual-Degree Program can be viewed here. These indicate the courses taken at Appalachian that are counted towards those programs.
The first Pre-Engineering program has been approved by the Subcommittee on Pre-Engineering of the University of North Carolina General Administration. If a student completes this program and meets all requirements, they may transfer and be accepted at any of the engineering programs at: North Carolina A & T State University, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In addition students may use this program to transfer to engineering programs outside the state of North Carolina. For further information see the 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog or click here (Page 103 begins the Preprofessional Programs).
The second Pre-Engineering program is with the College of Engineering at Clemson University. Students may pursue pre-engineering studies for Agricultural, Ceramic, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Analysis. Two pre-engineering check sheets for courses to be taken for Agricultural and Chemical Engineering and for All other Engineering Disciplines are available.
If you are interested in either program, please see the list of advisors.

Those who are prospective pre-engineering students or those pre-registering for their freshman year for transfer to North Carolina Engineering Colleges and Schools see the freshman curriculum check sheet. Those who are already enrolled may wish to use the sophomore curriculum check sheet.
If you are planning to transfer to North Carolina State University then you may use the following list of ASU Humanity and Social Science courses which will directly transfer to their required humanities and social science areas. No matter which curriculum you are pursuing, make sure you see your advisor who will help you tailor your course selections. Updated: 12-1-08
