Applied Pre-Engineering

What are the options with Applied Pre-Engineering?

A normal pre-engineering program focuses exclusively on math and science preparation for students transferring to a 4-year engineering program. YC's unique Applied Pre-engineering program still prepares students for transfer like a normal pre-engineering program, but also allows students the opportunity to explore whether engineering is really for them before they decide to transfer to a university.

The Applied Pre-engineering degree helps students narrow down possible engineering paths by exposing them to a variety of engineering disciplines and gives them real-world experience in robotics, electronics, and modern manufacturing processes vital to being an effective engineer in the 21st century.
