The department offers two options in pre-engineering: the standard two-year pre-engineering curriculum, or a dual-degree program in which the student may receive a bachelor's degree with a major in physical science from Freed-Hardeman and a degree in engineering from an ABET accredited school of engineering after the successful completion of the prescribed curricula at both schools.
The dual-degree is a 3-2 program, including three years at Freed-Hardeman and two years at the school of engineering.
Read our brochure for additional information.
To make your path to graduation a little easier, a 4-year plan for students planning to pursue a degree in engineering has been created:
B.S. Major in Physical Science (Pre-Engineering)
Program Coordinator: Dr. Charles Tucker
The advisor for the Pre-Engineering Program will prescribe the course of study for each student based upon the branch of engineering selected and the school of engineering chosen for completion of the program. A typical course of study is outlined below.
A pre-engineering student may be awarded a B.S. Degree in Physical Science from FHU provided he/she has completed a three-year, 99 semester-hour program of study outlined by the program coordinator, plus a completed degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited school of engineering.
It is the responsibility of the student to notify the program coordinator of his/her intentions to graduate from Freed-Hardeman and to contact the registrar to complete the application and other procedures for graduation. Application must be made at least one semester prior to the intended graduation date.
