The pre-engineering concentration prepares students for the Simon’s Rock/Columbia University Engineering Program.

Engineering and applied science fields include applied math, applied physics, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, industrial engineering, materials science, and mechanical engineering. The goal of the pre-engineering concentration is to allow students the opportunity to explore their interests in the liberal arts while gaining the necessary background in mathematics and science. Engineers with a background in the liberal arts can be better prepared to apply their technical expertise to the issues that impact society.
