Wanting Engineering

Wanting Engineering (WEGR) is not an engineering major code since it is not a degree. It is only available to students who are still in University College. This coding is used with students who are interested in engineering as a major, but do not have the background to begin as an engineering major (would not be admitted as an engineering major). It provides them with an opportunity to take courses that follow the freshman engineering degree pathway with the benefit of having an engineering advisor. Many WEGR students become engineering majors after successfully completing specific required courses (see below). The decision about if and when a student is ready to be changed to an engineering major is determined by the assistant dean.
