We offer a high quality Pre-Engineering Program which satisfies at least two full years toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. Although most of the first two years of course work focus on basic physics, mathematics, and humanities core requirements, specialized engineering courses allow students to select a curriculum from among
- Aerospace Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Engineering Technology
The Single Degree program usually requires more than four years to complete the degree.
A Dual-Degree Program is available for students who desire to earn two bachelor's degrees, a mathematics or science degree from VSU and an engineering degree from Georgia Tech. This program should be carefully planned and usually requires more than five years to complete. For more information, see the VSU Catalog or our Coordinator for the Regent's Engineering Transfer Program, Dr B. Hojjatie.
|Dr Mary Fares, PhD||Electrical engineering|

How Well Do Our Students Perform?
VSU students who have transferred engineering degree-granting institutions have achieved outstanding success while completing their degree requirements. The solid educational foundation and personal confidence attained while attending VSU provide a distinct advantage to succeed in advanced-level engineering course work within a highly competitive environment. More than 70% of our transfer students make the academic Dean's List at Georgia Tech and more than 10% of our transfer students have continued their studies to earn graduate degrees there. In addition, VSU ranks first of all the RETP schools in percentage of transfer students who have graduated from or are still enrolled at Georgia Tech (92%).
