Notes

Admission to the Volgenau School of Engineering is competitive.


Some of the engineering programs at VCCS campuses differ slightly.  Students must work closely with their VCCS faculty advisor to insure that all pre-requisites and core course requirements are met. 


MTH 285 will typically substitute for the CHM requirement in the AS-Electrical Engineering specialization. Students are strongly encouraged to complete MTH 285 at the community college.
