Students who satisfactorily complete the two-year Pre-Engineering program or the three-year B.S. in Engineering program are well-prepared to transfer to an engineering school at which they may complete their engineering studies in approximately two additional years. The B.S. in Engineering program is a cooperative degree program between Eastern Illinois University and either the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign or Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Students who complete this program earn two degrees, one from EIU and one from UIUC or SIUC.
