Application for Engineering Standing

Admission to engineering standing in a degree program is necessary in order to continue in upper level courses and to be granted a baccalaureate degree in engineering or computer science. There are specific departmental requirements for admission to engineering standing and engineering standing applies to a specific program.  Hence, receiving engineering standing in one program does not grant engineering standing in another.  Please refer to the “College of Engineering” section in the UK Bulletin of the year you entered the College of Engineering for more information.
