Is Pre-Engineering right for you?

Do you have a desire to understand how things work and operate? Do you have a passion for creating? If so, USFSM’s Pre-Engineering program might be the right fit for you.

In partnership with the College of Engineering at USF in Tampa, students are now able to enroll in pre-engineering courses at USF Sarasota-Manatee. A pre-engineering degree from USFSM offers students the option to prepare for engineering careers where they already live and work. This program gives students convenient access to USF's world-class engineering programs, with a 2-plus-2 college course plan.

Students in the program will take requisite undergraduate courses at USFSM for the first two years, which align with USF’s Engineering programs in Tampa. Once students complete these courses, they will be eligible to continue their studies at USF’s College of Engineering in Tampa.
