Prospective students follow the same admission procedures as any UNCW student and should indicate 'Engineering' as their interest area on their admission application. It is important to indicate Engineering as a choice of interest on your admission application so that the Program Director is assigned to you as an academic advisor.
Prospective 2+2 students are encouraged to take chemistry, physics, and as many mathematics courses as their high school offers, preferably through pre-calculus or calculus with the terminal course taken in the senior year. Upon admission to UNCW, entering freshmen are encouraged to attend the earliest possible orientation session to ensure availability of courses. Admitted freshmen students are also encouraged to apply for the Science and Engineering Learning Community, where students will be enrolled in "linked" course sections of chemistry, the freshman seminar course, and the engineering survey course.
Additional admission information for first-year freshman students can be found on the UNCW Admissions website. Prospective transfer student admission information can be found on the UNCW Transfer Admission website. All prospective transfer students are encouraged to contact the Program Director regarding transfer course equivalencies.
