From your cell phone to your bowl of cereal, almost everything you touch has an engineer behind it. Would you like to be one of those engineers? Would you like to touch the world? Our engineering major will help you get there.
In our program, you'll learn all kinds of interesting concepts. And, you'll get to do some pretty neat things. You'll build a contraption around an egg - yes, an egg. Then you'll drop it off the roof of Fisher Hall. The idea, of course, is to build the right contraption to keep the egg from breaking.
You'll start your bachelor of science degree in engineering on our campus, successfully completing the prerequisites to the junior year, and completing the degree at the Swanson School of Engineering at the Pittsburgh campus.
As an entering freshman, you must meet one of the following requirements to be admitted directly to the engineering program at Pitt-Bradford.
1. SAT Math score of 500 (old test) or 520 (new test) or better, or
2. SAT Math score of 450 (old test) or 490 (new test) better and high school GPA of 3.25 or better.
For those students who want to major in engineering but do not meet either of the above requirements, a one-year pre-engineering program is required consisting of the following:
Completing your bachelor's degree
You will have to complete 60-72 credits at Pitt-Bradford, have a grade point average of at least 3.0 in your first-year engineering courses, and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 before you will be considered for admission to the baccalaureate degree program at the Swanson School of Engineering in Pittsburgh if space is available. The first year of study is common to all engineering majors. Students pursuing bioengineering must relocate to the Swanson School of Engineering after completing 34 credits with a GPA of 3.50 or better. Students pursuing industrial engineering must relocate to the Swanson School of Engineering after completing 36 credits with a GPA of 3.0 or better.
Students who have a critical reading SAT score below 500 (old test) or 555 (new test) are required to complete ENG 0101, English Composition I and may be placed in ENG 0100 if their score is lower than 440 (old test) or 490 (new test).
Our engineering graduates work at some pretty interesting places - IBM, Westinghouse, NASA, the U.S. Naval Shipyard - and you can, too.
