Transfer Pathways and Advising

Engineering Transfers

Engineering Technology and Construction Management Transfers

Students may transfer into the Engineering programs at UNC Charlotte either with or without an Associate of Engineering (AE) or Associate of Science (AS) degree from a community or technical college.

Students with an AE degree are awarded at least 60 semester hours of academic credit upon admission to UNC Charlotte.

Transfers to Engineering Programs are advised separately and a personal program of study is prepared for each entering student.

 

Students may transfer into the Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs at UNC Charlotte either with or without an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from a community or technical college.

Students with an AAS degree are awarded 64 semester hours of transfer credit. Their studies at UNC Charlotte are considered the second part of a “2+2” arrangement.

Students without AAS degrees come in with differing sets of completed coursework, so each individual is advised separately and a personal program of study is prepared for each entering student.

For more information on how your credits may transfer, please refer to the UNC Charlotte Transfer Credit Advisor or the Tranfer Guides below.
