Engineering students complete the freshmen engineering curriculum at Greensburg and then relocate to either the Swanson School of Engineering (Pittsburgh campus) or the Engineering Technology Program (Johnstown campus). To be eligible for relocation to the Swanson School of Engineering, students must meet the following criteria: (1) the presentation of a satisfactory high school record with respect to selection of courses and test results. (2) Completion of 34 credits at Pitt-Greensburg with a minimum GPA 2.75 except for bioengineering students who must have a minimum GPA of 3.50. (3) Completion of all first-year engineering courses listed below with grades of C or better:
In recognition of the transitional nature of the first year at the University, the Swanson School of Engineering permits a new freshman student to repeat required courses of the freshman year in which D or F grades were received. These courses must be repeated within one academic year following the original registration. Original credits and grade points from these courses will not be used in the calculation of the student’s cumulative grade point average. This applies only to freshman courses taken during the first calendar year of attendance as a new freshman student. This does not apply to transfer students.
In order to complete the freshmen engineering curriculum in two semesters, students must be eligible to take Calculus in the first semester. Engineering students who do not place into Calculus should consider taking prerequisite math classes during the summer or plan to spend an extra semester or two at Pitt-Greensburg before relocating.
