Trevecca Nazarene University/Vanderbilt University Pre-Engineering —Engineering Transfer Agreement
Students who wish to combine study in a pre-engineering curriculum with further study in an engineering discipline may do so under a transfer agreement between Trevecca Nazarene University and Vanderbilt University. Under this agreement, a student will spend the first three years of his or her college career at Trevecca Nazarene University taking the pre-engineering curriculum, followed by two years at Vanderbilt University studying in one of their engineering programs. The available engineering programs are Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. A student who completes this five-year course of study will have had the experience of dividing an academic career between the pre-engineering environment of a Christian liberal arts university and the engineering climate in a professional school.
During the first three years in the student's program, at least 99 hours of coursework in the Applied Physics major with required support courses will be completed. After successful completion of the pre-engineering requirements with a 3.5 or higher GPA, and upon recommendation by the faculty at Trevecca Nazarene University, the student will be qualified to transfer to Vanderbilt University for the completion of an engineering degree. After successful completion of one academic year of prescribed study in an engineering discipline at Vanderbilt, Trevecca will accept in transfer 09 hours of engineering coursework as electives for the 58 hours required in the major (major and required science and math supporting courses) and a total of 21 hours to be applied toward Trevecca’s 120-hour graduation requirement. If the student subsequently continues with his/her study at Vanderbilt, and successfully meets all prescribed completion requirements for a Vanderbilt University engineering degree major, the student will be awarded the appropriate credential.
