PRE-ENGINEERING
2005 - 2006 College of the Ozarks Catalog

Martin Niboh, Advisor

College of the Ozarks offers two options to those students who plan to enter one of the various engineering fields. Under the first option, called the Three-Two plan, the student spends three years at College of the Ozarks and two years at the engineering school of his/her choice. The student in the pre-engineering program under this plan must meet the General Education requirements of College of the Ozarks. The student who chooses the Three-Two plan will, upon graduation from engineering school, receive a B.S. degree from College of the Ozarks in addition to whatever engineering degree is received. In summary, for this option, two degrees rather than one are received.

Under the second option, the student planning to enter one of the engineering fields may elect to spend only two years here under the Two-Year plan. Students who take this option will not receive a degree, but they may accelerate their progress toward an engineering degree.

Suggested courses for Pre-Engineering:

MAT 133 College Algebra CSC 113 Fundamentals of Computer Systems
MAT 142 Trigonometry CSC 133 Programming Fundamentals I
MAT 175 Calculus I ENG 103 College Composition I

The courses mentioned above will transfer to almost every engineering school. Additional courses should be selected by referring to the catalog of the engineering school of the student’s choice and by consulting with the student’s faculty advisor, or a faculty member from chemistry, mathematics or physics.
