This is a two year program in which students take core math, physics
and chemistry classes in preparation for acceptance into an engineering
program. UWSP offers degrees in Paper Science and Engineering
and Chemical Engineering
, but for other engineering degrees students must transfer to another institution.
For all pre-engineering areas except pre-chemical engineering, you
should take the following science and mathematics courses in your
freshman and sophomore years: Math 120, 121, 220, 222; Physics 240, 250,
300. Chemistry 105, 106 (or 117) is also recommended. Specific
engineering curricula and universities have individual requirements. See
a physics advisor for additional information and suggested electives.
For pre-chemical engineering and/or ABET accredited engineering, see
Paper Science and Engineering in the catalog.

Two Year Plan
The following tables illustrate a typical plan to complete the
program within a two-year time frame. Students
taking different paths may take longer than the four year plan here.
Please consult with and advisor when planning your major – some physics
courses are taught only in alternate years.
