What is the PreEngineering Program?

To support the success of future engineers, the university provides the TTU PreEngineering Program (PREN).  PreEngineering students benefit from the highly personal, success-oriented, and career-focused advising provided by University Advising during their first academic semesters at Texas Tech.  

What will I do as a PreEngineering Student?

Over the first few semesters, a PreEngineering student will follow a normal engineering course of study and participate in all activities organized and promoted by the Whitacre College of Engineering. PreEngineering students interact closely with their assigned academic advisors who facilitate a values-based decision-making process and connect students with valuable campus resources to facilitate their overall success.  

The process described above regularly leads students to the selection of best-fit minors, undergraduate research areas, and potential graduate programs.  Some students may identify other majors that better suit their interests and talents.  In each case, PreEngineering students are advised to enroll in coursework that will apply to engineering degrees while maximizing the flexibility of their available academic options.
