Pre-Engineering Studies

Why Truman? 

When you choose to spend your first two years of your Bachelor of Engineering degree at Truman:

  • You benefit from the high quality and small sizes of Truman classes taught by regular faculty.
  • You receive personal attention from faculty and you get to know your peers better.
  • You learn in a quality liberal arts and sciences environment that offers research opportunities that are more difficult to come by at a larger institution.

All physics and mathematics courses taken at Truman are guaranteed to transfer to the University of Missouri-Columbia and Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, and usually transfer to other engineering schools as well.

Sample Plans

Our Pre-Engineering Sample Plans will help you plan for Truman courses to take before transferring to an engineering school.  You may also want to look at sample engineering curricula from UM-Columbia and MUST-Rolla. Please consult with your academic advisor to make strategic academic decisions about which courses to take each semester.

As a physics major at Truman, you:

  • pursue a rigorous training in the theories and practice of physics
  • learn to think independently and critically
  • work with modern technology and equipment in a competitive and supportive academic environment
