Program Overview

Augusta University participates in the University System of Georgia Engineering Pathways program enabling our students to smoothly transfer to the engineering program in the state or complete a dual degree in physics and engineering. The Department of Chemistry and Physics and the Department of Mathematics offer many of the courses required of freshmen and sophomores to prepare students for transfer to engineering programs.  Because of the curriculum overlap with the physics programs, students will generally declare a physics major with a pre-engineering concentration while completing prerequisite coursework.  Our students are highly successful at completing programs following transfer to such institutions as Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia, Georgia Southern University and Southern Polytechnic State University, as well as other programs outside the state of Georgia.  There are many diverse programs to consider such as Mechanical, Electrical or Civil engineering or programs such as BioChemical, Computer Systems, Environmental, or Biological Engineering programs.

STEM areas are in high demand for employers, and growth in many engineering disciplines is anticipated to be high.  Engineers will train to solve complex analytical problems with both computational and hands on techniques with real world applications.

The Department will work with students to help select the best path through the course work for their desired or intended program.  It is advisable for students to research the specific program of interest so that advisors can help design a custom curriculum.  In addition to your advisor in the Academic Advising Center, you should also begin consulting with a faculty advisor early in your academic career.  There is a broad diversity in specific requirements for each program. Track sheets and links to Georgia institutions can be found on the Department of Chemistry and Physics web site.
