Most of the first two years of course work required by engineering schools may be taken at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. This includes the foundation courses in mathematics through calculus, chemistry, physics, engineering mechanics, drafting, computer programming, and general education.

Any mathematics below calculus (MATH 1834) is considered a deficiency by the engineering schools. It is strongly recommended that high school students who are interested in engineering take all available mathematics, a year of physics, and a year of chemistry.

Students should take full advantage of the credit-by-examination program, which is available at SWOSU.

Interested students should contact the Chemistry and Physics Department for advisement when registering at SWOSU. It is also advisable to secure an engineering bulletin and catalog from the engineering schools where transfer will be considered.
