Transfer Pre-Engineering Program (T-PREP)

T-PREP is an eight day summer program offered to newly admitted Berkeley Engineering transfer students.  The transition from a community college to a major research university can be challenging and the average transfer student underestimates the degree of transition.  Students who participate in
T-PREP will be well versed and prepared to meet the rigors of being a Junior in the College of Engineering. 



What are the benefits of T-PREP?

Study skills and time management strategies necessary for success in a rigorous engineering program

  • Hands-on experience in group study and problem solving in common first semester transfer engineering courses
  • Workshops focusing on academic and social issues common to transfer students
  • Networking with other new transfer students and experienced transfers in the College of Engineering
  • Undergraduate out-of-the-classroom learning opportunities (i.e. research, leadership development)
  • Graduate school and career preparation
  • Exposure to industry representatives providing a glimpse into industry trends
  • Guidance on establishing professional relationships with faculty

Is T-PREP for you?

All incoming engineering transfer first-year students (including undocumented) are invited to apply for T-PREP.  The program focuses on the academic issues facing students from groups who are:

  • Members of a group historically underrepresented in the field of engineering
  • From low income or first generation backgrounds
  • Non-traditionally aged
  • Parents
  • U.S. Veterans

When is T-PREP?

T-PREP will take place August 15 to August 22. Students should be available to fully commit to the entire eight day program.

What is the cost of T-PREP?

There is no cost to attend the program. T-PREP is provided by through the generous support of our sponsors (Lockheed Martin, RECARE Foundation and College of Engineering) Lodging, food, and materials is all provided for you. A small amount of spending money is all you will need.
