Recommended Transfer Engineering Curricula
Associate in Engineering Science (AES-0053)
Baccalaureate engineering programs are highly structured in order to meet standards established by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) which are required for candidates seeking State of Illinois registration as a professional engineer.
To transfer as a junior into a baccalaureate engineering program, students must complete a minimum of 62 semester hours to a maximum of 68 semester hours from the following list, including all of the essential prerequisite courses. Students with fewer than 68 semester hours at transfer are unlikely to complete the baccalaureate degree within two years after transfer.
Since admission is highly competitive, completion of the courses listed does not guarantee admission. Students should select courses in consultation with the Transfer Center to be certain they meet the requirements of the institution to which they plan to transfer.
General Education Core Courses (12-18)
Since completion of this engineering curriculum does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois Genera, Education Core Curriculum. Students will need to complete the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer. Students are encouraged to select at least one course in either the humanities or the social and behavioral sciences that emphasizes non-western cultures or minority cultures within the United States.
