Engineering Transfer Programs

Interested in Engineering at Sam Houston State University?

We offer three pre-engineering transfer programs described below.

Engineering Transfer Programs

    1. 2+2 Transfer program in Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering with the University of Texas at Tyler

      Engineers are visionaries which create and design new systems and products with economic, social and environmental impact. The Engineering Technology – Pre-Engineering program at Sam Houston State University prepares students with essential skills and a solid academic foundation in engineering principles for transfer into The University of Texas at Tyler Bachelor of Science Engineering Programs.  Upon acceptance, students can complete course work and achieve degrees in engineering disciplines such as civil, electrical and mechanical engineering at either the main campus in Tyler, TX or UT Tyler Engineering Center in Houston. For more information on this program, contact the Engineering Technology Department Chair, Dr. Faruk Yildiz (936-294-3774 or fxy001@shsu.edu ).

    2. Physics/Engineering Dual Degree 3+2 program

      For the Dual Degree Plan the student completes three years in Physics at Sam Houston State University and the curriculum in an engineering field at a university with a recognized accredited degree program in the chosen engineering field. After successfully completing this program, the student receives two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Physics from Sam Houston State University and one in an engineering specialty from the university with the recognized accredited engineering degree program. The applicable engineering specialties are aerospace, agriculture, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, nuclear, petroleum, and radiation protection engineering. For more information on this program, contact the Physics Department Chair, Dr. Joel Walker (936-294-4803, jwalker@shsu.edu ).

    3. Chemistry/Chemical Engineering Dual Degree 3+2 program

      The Department of Chemistry in cooperation with accredited chemical engineering degree programs offers a 3 + 2 program.  The student completes a rigorous, highly-structured three years of Chemistry and core courses at SHSU and then transfers to an accredited chemical engineering degree program for an additional two years in Chemical Engineering.  Upon successful completion of this curriculum, the student will receive two Bachelor of Science degrees, a Bachelor of Science with a major in Chemistry from Sam Houston State University, and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the university with the accredited chemical engineering program.  This program typically requires 157 credit hours, and the first three years must be completed at Sam Houston State University. For more information on this program, contact the Chemistry Department Chair, Dr. Rick Norman (936-294-1527, norman@shsu.edu).
