USC Upstate does not offer professional engineering degrees in Civil,
Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Computer or Biomedical Engineering.
The USC Upstate pre-engineering program is designed to meet entrance
requirements of the USC College of Engineering in Columbia. The
pre-engineering program at USC Upstate consists of approximately one year of
basic science, mathematics, humanities and social science courses.
After completing foundational coursework, students must transfer to an
engineering institution for completion of a baccalaureate degree. Timely
degree completion requires students to enter the engineering program of
their choice in their third semester (Fall of the Sophomore year).
Entry to all engineering programs is on a competitive basis.
majors who wish to transfer to the USC College of Engineering must have
a cumulative grade point average (G.P.A.) of 2.75 or higher. All
transfer students must complete at least one semester of calculus with a
minimum grade of “C” prior to transfer.
interested in engineering programs other than the USC College of
Engineering should consult that particular school's catalog for transfer
and admissions requirements. Courses that are typically required for
most programs include English, Calculus, Chemistry and Physics.
