Engineering Technology


Admission to Engineering Technology College

Admission requirements to the Engineering Technology programs differ based on whether students enter as 1) freshman, 2) transfer with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, or 3) transfer without an AAS degree.

Applicants entering as freshman must meet the general University admission requirements.

Admission to an Engineering Technology Department

Students meeting the university admission requirements may be admitted to the Engineering Technology program as freshmen.

Students entering the Engineering Technology Department into the 2+2 program must have an Associate in Applied Science degree in an Engineering Technology program which would normally include any necessary prerequisite courses.

Transfers without an AAS degree or its equivalent must meet general University admission requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

An application for undergraduate admissions; a fee of $60; official high school transcripts; proof of English ability demonstrated by official scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), official scores on the IELTS, or U.S. High School diploma and transcripts indicating two years of attendance, if the applicant is from a non-English speaking country; SAT or ACT score; and a statement of financial responsibility. A course-by-course foreign credential evaluation of academics must also be submitted from International Education Evaluations, Inc., Educational Perspectives, or ECE.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as resident students.

Residency Requirements

Students must complete the last 30 semester hours of credit toward the degree in residence as well as the last 12 semester hours of the work in the major field.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students
