A preparatory year is a program for students to get acquainted with their desired field of study before entering a full higher education program. Students learn information related to succeeding in school, as well as learning the target language if they are international students. They also take specific courses related to their field of interest.

What is a preparatory year in engineering studies? This program can give students the science and math fundamentals they will need before starting school for an engineering degree. It can also aid international students in understanding the target language before transferring to an engineering program. Students may take courses such as chemistry, linear algebra, analytical geometry and history of engineering. Older students may use the program to brush up on skills before applying to a higher education institution.

There are many benefits to doing a preparatory year, such as getting an edge over other candidates. The year can also help prepare students for the rigors of college and allow them to experience the college environment before starting their major.

The costs of doing this type of program vary depending on where you choose to study. Anyone interested in applying to a specific program should contact that particular institution in order to get the most up to date information.

Those who complete a preparatory year use it not to find work but to prepare themselves for succeeding in their desired major. Graduates who then go on to obtain degrees in engineering can often find employment in such engineering fields as chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, software and nuclear. Engineers are generally in high demand due to the specific nature of the industry and continued progress in science and technology.

Students interested in a preparatory year in engineering can often find a wide range of options for study. Some schools offer both full- and part-time options, as well as online courses. Students also often study abroad before entering an international program. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
