2+2 and BSE Engineering Site-Based Programs

Prospective NC State University students do not have to uproot their lives and move to Raleigh to begin an educational career in one of our undergraduate engineering programs. Engineering Online has partnered with several North Carolina institutions to extend the offering of NC State University’s undergraduate instruction to citizens around North Carolina. Through Engineering Online, future engineering professionals like you can complete a site-based pre-engineering program at one of our remote sites and later transfer to NC State University.  

Engineering Online’s undergraduate options allow you to attend a 2-year pre-engineering program at Craven Community College at Havelock, NC, UNC Asheville or UNC Wilmington.  As a site-based engineering student, you will receive expert instruction from your home institution in courses that fulfill general education requirements at NC State University, while taking engineering courses directly from NC State University’s faculty through Engineering Online’s instructional technologies. By enrolling in a site-based engineering program, you will simultaneously attend two schools at one site, and get the best of both programs. 

Enrolling as a site-based engineering student does not guarantee your admission to NC State University and should not be viewed as a way of bypassing the University’s competitive admission process. However, successful site-based engineering students apply to the University with a demonstrated ability to master the rigorous coursework involved in our engineering programs. For this reason, participants in our site-based engineering programs can have a strong competitive edge over other NC State University applicants. 

Applicants to a site-based engineering program should review the admission requirements and procedures of both their home institution, and the NC State University engineering program to which they wish to apply. Use the links to the left to learn more about how site-based engineering programs work, the admission process, and costs of participation.
