What Can I Do With Pre-Engineering?

Engineering Programs

Pre-engineering from University of the Cumberlands – with majors in physics or mathematics – is designed to help students fulfill entrance requirements for the engineering programs that most appeal to them. With an average median wage of $87,060 per year and a faster than average projected growth rate of 6 percent by 2028, a career as a civil engineer1 is both profitable and in demand.


A physics degree from University of the Cumberlands also offers a solid degree path, in and of itself, to a career – like a physicist. Job growth in the industry is projected to grow 9 percent by 2028, with an annual median wage of $122,220.
