The Engineering Fast Track allows high school students the unique opportunity to explore STEM fields and accelerate completion of an engineering degree by enrolling in and completing four (4) college courses.

To successfully complete the Engineering Fast Track, a student must complete all four (4) courses online through Open Scale Courses with a final GPA of 3.0.

Benefits of Open Scale Courses:

  • No risk. Payment is collected only upon completion of the course, if the student is both happy with the grade they have received and would like to receive academic credit.
  • Low cost. Total cost for taking a course is $425 ($400 course cost + $25 fee).
  • Same faculty, same credit. All courses are taught by the same ASU faculty that teaches the on-campus version. Credit received for the course is identical.

How it works

  1. Sign up at hs.ea.asu.edu.
  2. Enroll in MAT 265, CHM 114, FSE 100 and CSE 110*
  3. Select “Pursue Credit” to take the course for academic credit ($25 fee).
  4. Complete your four (4) courses with a 3.0 GPA or better, and select “Get Credit” for each course ($400 per course)
  5. Receive an official transcript with your academic credit, which you can immediately apply towards the 3+1 program at Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Students who complete the Engineering Fast Track will receive the STEM Record of Achievement.

          *We recommend taking 1-2 courses each term.

Courses:

  • MAT 265: Calculus for Engineers I: Calculus with Analytic Geometry for Science and Engineering

Learn the techniques for solving optimization problems and applications for engineering problems

  • CHM114: General Chemistry for Engineers

Learn how atoms and molecules act and interact to make the modern materials that underpin technology and solve engineering challenges.

  • FSE100: Introduction to Engineering: Imagine. Design. Engineer!

Discover how to become a true engineer by exploring the engineering design processes in a hands-on learning environment.

  • CSE110: Programming for Everyone: Introduction to Programming

Knowing how to program, understand and control the machines that surround us, is a critical skill in our modern world.

These courses also qualify toward earning a Master’s degree in engineering in the time it takes most students to earn an undergraduate degree. Learn more at 3+1 Program.
