Pre-Engineering

 Joseph A. Iskra, Jr., Faculty Advisor

Wesleyan offers a dual-degree program in engineering with the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta; Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama; and Mercer University in Macon. Through this cooperative pre-engineering program, students attend Wesleyan College for approximately three academic years (90 semester hours) and Georgia Tech, Auburn or Mercer for approximately two years.

After completing the academic requirements of the two cooperating institutions, dual-degree students will receive a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan College and one of the several designated bachelor’s degrees awarded by the cooperating institution. Two recent graduates earned dual degrees in engineering with Georgia Tech and both will pursue graduate studies at Georgia Tech in the fall: Ariel Brown (electrical engineering) and Azekah Griffiths (civil engineering with highest honor). Ariel has a summer internship with Lockheed-Martin. 

If you plan to enroll in the dual-degree program, you must talk to Wesleyan’s dual-degree advisor at least by the beginning of your second year. For details on the technical or management degrees offered and course requirements, please see our Academic Catalogue.
