Engineering Program Requirements

Northwestern Michigan College has joined with Michigan Technological University, Kettering University, and Lake Superior State University to offer a two plus two program whereby a student attends NMC for the first two years and then completes the final two years of an engineering degree at one of the participating four-year institutions. A student admitted into the two plus two program at NMC has the added advantage of a guaranteed place in the major of their choice at one of the four year institutions.

NOTE: Use this list of courses as a guide only. It is not applicable for all engineering specialties or all schools of engineering. It is important to follow specific requirements for each engineering program available in transfer guides at nmc.edu/transfer-guides or in the Advising Center.

Engineering ASA – NMC Code 709

The NMC engineering curriculum parallels engineering programs offered during the first two years at other colleges and universities. Traditionally, these first two years emphasize the tools and theories that provide background for all engineering fields. Students are required to meet with an advisor for completion of this degree.

*More chemistry may be required depending on the area of specialization.

**Students not prepared to begin with Calculus must start at an appropriate level of mathematics determined by placement test scores, or placement by the mathematics department faculty. Computer Science requirements may differ depending on your transfer school.

Students who plan to earn an associate degree at NMC are required to meet with an advisor for completion of this degree.

Engineering ASE – NMC Code 736

NMC offers an intensive Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) transfer degree that is intended to prepare students for transfer to a four-year engineering program. The NMC engineering curriculum parallels engineering programs offered during the first two years at other colleges and universities. Traditionally, these first two years emphasize the tools and theories that provide background for all engineering fields. Students are required to meet with an advisor for completion of this degree.
