Pre-Engineering Transfer Program

Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University and the University of Colorado cooperate with Adams State University to facilitate transfer of credit for the courses listed in the pre-engineering program. Engineering programs differ in their requirements for the first two years.

Consultation with the pre-engineering advisor at Adams State University is essential to ensure proper transfer of credit. Failure to work with a pre-engineering advisor might result in loss of credit during transfer and additional coursework. Advisement is particularly necessary in the selection of elective courses to prevent a delay in graduating from a participating engineering school. The coursework listed below is a typical schedule for students interested in engineering.
