Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or Physics (Pre-Engineering Track)
Engineers have a strong foundation in the applied sciences and use mathematics and scientific knowledge to design solutions for technical problems. Engineers design materials, structures, machines and systems while taking cost, safety and practical limitations into consideration. Our Pre-Engineering program is designed to help students succeed in gaining acceptance to an engineering institution accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) through one of several options. Three different opportunities allow the student to choose a program to meet individual goals and needs.
The Evangel University Department of Natural and Applied Sciences is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent pre-engineering education that is thoroughly integrated with the University’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Engineering students learn to exhibit analytical thinking and problem-solving skills; the demand for engineers is predicted to continue to increase.
The associate’s degree in pre-engineering requires 62 credits of coursework and can be accomplished in four semesters. The program contains the core requirements needed by a student transferring to an engineering school.
The dual degree program requires 78 hours at Evangel which can be completed in five semesters. Upon graduation from an accredited engineering school, the student is awarded two diplomas: a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics or Chemistry from Evangel and an Engineering degree from the second institution. In this program, students enjoy the benefits and enrichment of both a liberal arts and a professional engineering education, which make them uniquely prepared for a variety of challenging and rewarding career options. Engineering possibilities are limited only by one's choice of the cooperating institution.
A third option is to remain at Evangel and graduate with a double concentration in both physics and math. This requires the usual 124 hours that all Evangel students need to graduate. After graduation, a student can enter the workforce, transfer to an engineering school, or pursue graduate studies in either physics or engineering. There are two tracks within the Pre-Engineering program. Click your area of interest to see the program plan for each:

|Calculus III||Rectilinear and curvilinear motion, parametric equations, polar coordinates, improper integrals, partial differentiation, and multiple integrals.|
|Engineering Physics I||Fundamental theories and principles in classical physics of mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and optics with an introduction in modern physics based on the knowledge of calculus and vector manipulations.|
|Circuit Analysis||Instruction in AC and DC circuit components; energy and power; series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits; source conversions and Thevenin, Norton equivalency; mesh and nodal analysis; RLC circuits and frequency response.|
|Differential Equations||Equations of the first, second, and higher order; linear equations with constant coefficients and systems of equations; the Laplace Transform, power series, and other standard methods of solution; introduction to difference and partial differential equations; and applications to physics and engineering.|
|Statistics||Fundamentals of statics, vector analysis of forces and moments in two- and three-dimensions, free-body diagrams, static equilibrium, moments of inertia, centroids, shearing forces, and bending moments.|
Evangel University's world-class faculty is made up of caring, Christian professionals who are distinguished in their fields and dedicated to the development of tomorrow's Christian leaders.
Professor of biology Dr. Michael Tenneson has a passion for teaching and mentoring students who aspire to the enter the field of science. He was raised in Napa, California, and recognized early on that he had a special appreciation for the animals he cared for on his family’s small farm. He holds post-graduate degrees in […] read more

General Undergraduate Requirements
The following are general requirements for all students beginning an undergraduate program at Evangel. For more information visit Undergraduate Admissions Requirements.
|Faith||As a boldly Christian university, all of our students have made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.|
|Diploma||Graduation from high school, or having the equivalent of a high school diploma such as the General Education Development (GED) examination.|
|Core Subjects||A minimum of a 2.0 GPA in core college prep classes (English, math, social sciences and science with a lab)|
|Grade Average||A "C" average. However, in some cases, a student with a weak academic record may be considered. To remain at Evangel, however, the student must meet scholastic requirements.|
|Standardized Tests||>Entering freshmen should take the ACT or SAT test. The codes for Evangel are as follows: SAT: 6198. ACT: 2296.|
