The Pre-Engineering curriculum will provide an intensive program of mathematics, physics, and chemistry designed to prepare you for a career as an Engineer.

The program is designed to prepare students for transfer into an engineering program at other universities in Ohio, or throughout the United States, that offer four-year engineering degrees.   

In planning a program of study, students should be aware that most pre-engineering courses have mathematics and science prerequisites and that improper scheduling of courses can lengthen the time required to complete the degree. Students should also be aware that requirements may vary according to the university to which the student wishes to transfer. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to meet with the Pre-Engineering advisor prior to beginning their program.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
