Pre-Engineering (for UNL)

Offered by Department of Physics and Physical Science

UNK's Pre-Engineering program is broadly designed to meet the College of Engineering requirements at UNL. Because requirements for specific engineering programs at UNL and other universities may vary, students should always consult with their advisors before registration.
