Natural Science, Pre-Engineering Studies Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

The core and distribution requirements for a major in natural science, concentration in pre-engineering studies are outlined below. Exceptions can be made depending on the particular requirements of the school to which a transfer is planned for completion of the dual degree program. A GPA of at least 3.00 for all courses, as well as for math and laboratory science courses, should be maintained to improve the likelihood of acceptance into a desired engineering program. The current minimum GPA is 3.3 for automatic acceptance into high demand engineering departments at Georgia Tech (including mechanical, aerospace, electrical, computer, chemical, biomedical, and industrial), but this is subject to change.
