Pre-Professional Programs


The pre-engineering advisor is Dr. Michael Oudshoorn (


High Point University offers a 3-2 degree program in engineering with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). Students enrolled at High Point University and interested in a career in engineering, may, upon successful completion of an approved three-year program in pre-engineering curriculum, transfer to Virginia Tech to complete requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering. Depending on the engineering discipline, they may receive a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree from High Point University. Students can apply to Virginia Tech after the completion of two of three years at High Point University. With the recommendation of High Point University and the successful completion of the three-year course of study and approved GPA, students will be assured of admission. The completion of the course work at Virginia Tech will normally require two to three years depending on the engineering discipline and may also require some summer courses taken at Virginia Tech.

As a supplement to your academic advisor, the pre-engineering advisor will work one-on-one with you as well as offer you extracurricular and resume building opportunities. Our pre-engineering advisor will provide you with a structured three-year academic plan, as well as provide guidance with all matters related to transfers to Virginia Tech.

Since High Point University now offers degrees in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering, the 3-2 program is primarily aimed at students interested in other engineering disciplines.
