Students interested in pursuing a career in Engineering should have a strong background in Math and Science. Engineers are good problem solvers, so critical thinking and attention to detail are important skills for success. An engineer also needs to be an effective communicator to work in teams and to be able to explain engineering problems and solutions to non-engineers.
The Navarro College Pre-Engineering program helps students focus on developing a fundamental knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics, and provides an introduction to engineering. In addition, students take other general education classes in English, communication, the social sciences and humanities in order to fulfill the core curriculum requirements.
The following curriculum is suggested as an aid in program planning and may be modified by the student in order to meet specific requirements of the intended four-year program at a university. Each student is urged to consult with an academic advisor early in his/her freshman year to plan an entire Navarro College program with reference to a specific four-year program at a university. An Associate of Science Degree is awarded upon the completion of the basic curriculum leading to an Associate of Science degree.
