Degree Requirements


The bachelor of science degree in engineering is completed by starting at the Bradford campus, successfully completing the prerequisites to the junior year, and completing the degree at the Swanson School of Engineering in Pittsburgh.

An entering freshman must meet one of the following requirements to be admitted directly to the engineering program at Pitt-Bradford.

  1. SAT Math score of 500 or better, or
  2. SAT Math score of 450 or 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, an one-year pre-engineering program is required consisting of the following:

Fall
FS 0102 - FRESHMAN SEMINAR  
ENG 0101 - ENGLISH COMPOSITION 1  
MATH 0132 - PRECALCULUS  
CHEM 0101 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY 1   (or CHEM  0090)
Total: 12-13 credits
 
Spring
ENG 0102 - ENGLISH COMPOSITION 2  
MATH 0140 - CALCULUS 1  
CHEM 0101 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY 1  or CHEM 0102 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY 2  
A humanities elective
A social sciences elective
Total: 17 credits

 

Progression to the engineering program is dependent upon successful completion of above coursework with a minimum GPA of 3.00.

Students must complete a minimum of 34 credits at Pitt-Bradford with a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher before they are permitted to apply for relocation to the baccalaureate degree program at the Swanson School of Engineering in Pittsburgh. 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 3.00 or better. Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students must complete 2 years with a GPA of 3.00 or higher.

Students who have a verbal SAT score below 500 are required to complete ENG 0101 - ENGLISH COMPOSITION 1  and may be placed in ENG 0100 - INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE COMPOSITION  if their score is lower than 440. Students who have a math SAT score below 500 are required to take the following courses:

Second Year


The second year of study initiates course work in a specific engineering major. Following are the outlines of courses for:

Note


Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university.  Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
