Pre-College Preparation for Electrical Engineering
Some students have the illusion that college starts when you arrive on campus when in reality there are many things students can -- and should do -- to prepare for an engineering curriculum.
Strong Math Background
The most important college preparation for engineering is developing a strong math background. Math in engineering starts with Calculus. Students in high school need a strong background in math and should have a good mastery of pre-calculus topics before starting engineering.
Students without a pre-calculus course are not out of luck! Embry-Riddle offers a pre-calculus class which extends the completion time for an engineering degree.
Communication Skills Important
Similar arguments can be made regarding communications. A strong background in English and composition (writing) is a great starting point for students entering our Engineering Degree Program.
As the old saying goes, "Proper prior planning prevents poor performance." This is certainly the case in preparing for an Engineering Degree while in high school.
