In addition to USM’s core-mathematics track and general-education requirements, pre-engineering students will complete engineering courses while attending UMKC.


  • Freshman, sophomore, and junior year, students study at USM—under the 3+2 plan.
  • As a junior, students apply to UMKC.
  • Upon acceptance to UMKC, students embark on a two-year course of study* at UMKC(at the conclusion of their junior year).
  • After two years at UMKC, students are awarded a Bachelor of Science in either Civil Engineering or Mechanical Engineering and a USM Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics.
