General Regents’ Engineering Pathway Program Information

The Regents’ Engineering Pathway (REPP) was established in 1986 to expand the availability of engineering education opportunities for Georgians. Students complete two or more years of pre engineering courses at participating University System of Georgia (REPP Partner) institutions and then transfer to one of five institutions to complete a B.S. degree in Engineering.

The five engineering institutions in the Regent's Engineering Pathways Program include Georgia Tech,  the University of Georgia,  Kennesaw State University, Georgia Southern, and Mercer University. Each institution offers a variety of engineering programs, and has specific transfer requirements.
