Pre-engineering in conjunction with Polytechnic Institute of NYU
The Lander College Pre-Engineering program is geared for students interested in pursuing careers in any of the engineering fields including electrical, civil and mechanical engineering. This program demands a high level of competence in mathematics and the sciences. The pre-engineering program is completed in three or four semesters at Lander College for Men, at which point students transfer to NYU/Polytechnic University to continue their course of study, specializing in an engineering area of their interest.
The Lander College pre-engineering curriculum is designed and based on the courses that NYU/Polytechnic University requires of students majoring in any engineering discipline. Thus, the following curriculum is required of all engineering students. At Polytechnic University, students will specialize in an engineering area of their interest and continue to take courses to that end.
Each required or elective course satisfies a requirement or elective at Polytechnic University. Pre-engineering students are not required to satisfy the Lander College core since, under this plan, they complete their studies and receive their degree from Polytechnic, not a Lander College for Men degree. The following is a list of required courses offered at Lander College.
Polytechnic-Core/ Liberal Arts Courses
- LLE 101 English Composition 3
- LLE 102 English Composition II 3
- HIS 221 Survey of Modern History I or

Total credits 42
Students’ courses of study as they continue at Polytechnic University vary according to engineering discipline. Please refer to the Polytechnic website and literature for more information.
