The School of Engineering and Computer Science offers three engineering majors: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and General Engineering. Students who wish to pursue engineering at Baylor must first meet minimum standardized test score requirements:
Please note: All entering freshman will be classified as "Pre-Engineering" majors. In order to progress to the Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or General Engineering major, a student must earn a B or better in the introductory engineering courses, EGR 1301 and EGR 1302. In addition, students will take two math courses during the first year. All math courses require a grade of C or better. Once these conditions are met, the academic advisor will facilitate the change of major process. For more information, contact an academic advisor at ECS_Advising@baylor.edu.
Students who wish to enter Pre-Engineering after matriculating to Baylor must earn 12 credit hours in residence and a 3.0 cumulative GPA in order to apply. Applications will be reviewed by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs. Proficiency in math and science courses will be evaluated, as well as SAT/ACT test scores when applicable. Internal transfer students are subject to all Pre-Engineering policies and procedures.
All external transfer students must begin in Pre-Engineering and may only enter with a minimum 3.25 transfer GPA. They are subject to all Pre-Engineering policies and procedures. Upon entering Pre-Engineering, external transfer students who are transferring any engineering courses will be reviewed for eligibility to declare a degree-granting major. Effective Fall 2016.
