Pre-Engineering (for UNL) Program Suggestions

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.

Listed are the University of Nebraska at Kearney courses that transfer to the University of Nebraska - Lincoln for engineering. Take the courses at your community college that are equivalent to the 100-200 level courses listed.
