Course Preparation

To enter the paper science program or paper engineering program, you should have completed at least 3 1/2 years of college preparatory mathematics, including trigonometry, and two years of basic science such as physics and chemistry. If you lack some of this background, you may select courses at WMU to help you succeed in the program. Transfer credit from other colleges and universities will be granted for courses that satisfy WMU requirements.

Students interested in the paper engineering must also complete WMU's pre-engineering program for the department, which ensures that you take the right sequences of courses and are ready for upper-level courses. Unlike many other schools, WMU does not set quotas for admission to the engineering program; students who fulfill the requirements of the pre-engineering program are admitted to the program.


As a high school student interested in paper engineering, you can prepare by taking all advanced chemistry, math, and physics classes available. These courses will assist you with your college preparation and make it easy for you to "hit the ground running" here in Kalamazoo.
