Engineering Foundations 2+2 (for UNL)

Offered by Department of Physics and Astronomy

UNK's Engineering Foundations (2+2) 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.
