Engineering Technology Foundations Track

The Engineering Technology Foundations Track (EFT) is a one-year curriculum that is designed to improve mathematics, science, and study skills for students who are unprepared for the rigors of the Vermont Tech engineering programs. It also has the increased benefit of reducing class load for students in the first semesters of their chosen engineering program.

At Vermont Tech, the engineering programs are quite rigorous and students that do not place into MAT 1420 are required to complete the EFT two-semester sequence prior to entering into the regular engineering degree curriculum.

In addition to the EFT track, students who do not initially place into MAT 1420 may opt to take Summer Bridge prior to the start of their first semester. If math placement has improved after Summer Bridge to the extent that the student can be placed into MAT 1420, they will be allowed directly into the degree curriculum and will not be required to take the EFT.

The Summer Bridge program is an intensive four-week residential program that provides early main campus orientation, preparatory pre-college coursework in mathematics, physics, English, and computer. For more information on Summer Bridge, contact the Admissions office.
