Plastics & Composites Engineering Advising

As with all programs in the Engineering & Design Department, it is strongly recommended new students seek early advising with Pre-major Advisor. Students must initially declare as a pre-major in order to register for courses in the Engineering & Design department. Students interested in pursuing the PCE program must complete a set of prerequisite coursework (PCE Admissions) before they can apply for acceptance as a full major in the program.
