Notes and Additional Curriculum Options
- MTH 164 or the equivalent is the prerequisite for EGR 120.
- MTH 173 is the prerequisite for EGR 140.
- EGR 140 and MTH 174 are prerequisites for EGR 246.
- EGR 140, MTH 174, and PHY 241 are prerequisites for EGR 245.
- The social sciences elective requirement can be satisfied by courses with the following prefixes: ECO, GEO, PLS, HIS, PSY, and SOC.
- The humanities elective requirement can be satisfied by completing literature (ENG), foreign language, humanities (HUM), philosophy (PHI), art (ART), music (MUS), speech courses addressing performing arts and the history of theatre (CST), or religion (REL) courses. ENG 112, CST 100, CST 105, and CST 115 may not be used to satisfy humanities elective requirements.
- Students are encouraged to consult their faculty advisors or transfer colleges for advice regarding the selection of electives and other requirements specific to the engineering programs at the institutions where they plan to transfer.
- Transfer Articulation Agreement with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Virginia. Graduates of this program with 3.5 GPAs will meet the transfer requirements to U.Va. and may pursue their bachelor degrees in engineering by taking on-site and distance education courses from U.Va. offered at John Tyler Community College’s campuses or attending classes in Charlottesville. JTCC graduates with GPAs of less than 3.5 may seek admission to the U.Va. portion of the program in the same manner as all other students wishing to enter U.Va. degree programs.
