Pre-Engineering Program

The Engineering Science major, which combines mathematical, physical, and computational science, is recommended for pre-engineering students who wish to complete an engineering degree at another institution. The pre-engineering program is designed to enable students to demonstrate skill in the appropriate use of engineering specific technology, to develop confidence in strategies of problem-solving and to apply problem-solving strategies to “real-world” activities. The pre-engineering student is expected to communicate technical information effectively in both written and verbal form. The pre-engineering student is challenged to integrate his/her knowledge of mathematics and science with a Christian perspective to discover significant relationships between a Christian life and an engineering profession. The application for admission into the Engineering program at another institution should be started at the end of the sophomore year. Currently, UMHB maintains a cooperative relationship with Baylor University School of Engineering and Computer Science, Waco, Texas which could be altered in accordance with the needs of each institution. Through acceptance into the UMHB 3+2 or 4+2 program and through the negotiated articulation agreement between Baylor University and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, students are recommended for admission into the Baylor University School of Engineering and Computer Science upon completion of sufficient hours for consideration, typically three to four years of study at UMHB. Please note that UMHB does not guarantee admittance into Baylor University School of Engineering and Computer Science. More information concerning the program may be obtained from Dr. William G. Tanner, Jr., Chair of Computer Science and Engineering.
