Sample Schedule for Pre-Engineering Students at GRCC:


The sample schedule is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in engineering, including the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Michigan Technological University, Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University, and others. Various disciplines, colleges and universities may have additional requirements for application to the Engineering department. In some cases, it may be to the student’s advantage to transfer prior to obtaining an associate’s degree. It is critical that you contact any engineering program that you wish to attend and request information about their department and general admission requirements.
