Engineering programs are highly structured to meet the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (A.B.E.T.) standards required for registration as a professional engineer. Before transferring, you are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Engineering Science (A.E.S.) degree. To transfer as a junior, you must have 60 to 68 semester credits, including all of the prerequisite courses listed. You are unlikely to earn the bachelor's degree within 2 more years after transfer if you enter with less than 68 semester credits. You should decide on an Engineering specialty and your preferred transfer school by the beginning of your sophomore year since course requirements vary by specialty and by school. Be sure to select your courses in consultation with an Engineering faculty. A grade of "C" or better may be required for physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering science courses to transfer. A similar policy may exist for general education courses. The student is advised to check directly with his/her preferred transfer school. Academic Advising, 815/835-6354.
