Major Requirements

At present, the Department of Engineering is only offering a B.S. Engineering degree (major). This program offers comprehensive and fully-immersed technical training with a firm academic grounding in the liberal arts.

Although Wake Forest undergraduates do not officially declare majors until the sophomore year, all students interested in pursuing the B.S. Engineering degree should be enrolled in the exploratory introductory-level engineering courses, EGR 111 and EGR 112, in the fall and spring semesters, respectively, of their first year at Wake Forest. In addition, first-year engineering students should enroll in specific concurrent math and science courses (see recommended schedule at Incoming Students). These courses are prerequisites for sophomore-level engineering courses and must be completed in the first year.
