The University of Central Arkansas enjoys transfer agreements with Arkansas State University, the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, Mississippi State University, Texas A&M University, and the University of Missouri-Columbia. Under each agreement, students satisfactorily completing general education, mathematics, chemistry, and physics courses at UCA that are stipulated by the agreement and specified by the pre-engineering advisor will be able to transfer these courses toward an engineering degree. Students interested in any of these programs should contact the pre-engineering advisor, who will assist the student in laying out a complete plan of study.
Students interested in an engineering program other than those above should complete a core curriculum including the following courses:
- CHEM 1450 College Chemistry I
- CHEM 1451 College Chemistry II
- CSCI 1470 Computer Science I
- MATH 1591 Calculus I
- MATH 1592 Calculus II
- MATH 2371 Calculus III
- MATH 3331 Differential Equations
- PHYS 1441 University Physics 1
- PHYS 1442 University Physics 2
- PHYS 2443 University Physics 3
In addition to these courses, a student should complete WRTG 1310, WRTG 1320, and humanities and/or social science electives. Before selecting elective courses, the student should investigate the requirements of the engineering school the student expects to attend after completing work at UCA. Students should be aware that while courses from the Honors College can substitute for general education courses at UCA, there is no guarantee that these courses will be accepted as meeting these requirements by engineering programs.
