Why PREN and not Engineering?
The College of Engineering admits students directly to their majors based on TTU admission status. Students who are Assured Admits will be admitted to engineering. All other students who applied to engineering will be admitted as PreEngineering (PREN).
PREN students who earn at least a 3.0 GPA on a minimum of 12 hours of coursework within the Foundational curriculum are eligible to transfer to the College of Engineering as a Foundational student.
At RRO, you will work with University Advising to create an academic plan and schedule that facilitates transfer to the Whitacre College of Engineering. Math, science, and introductory engineering will play a heavy role in course schedules. State of Texas core requirements can be taken in just about any semester, so they will also be included in schedules and degree plans.
