NMC Transfer Guide - MTA

To: Michigan Technological University - Main Campus

Program: Engineering

2 + 2 OR Traditional Application

2 + 2: Northwestern Michigan College, in conjunction with Michigan Tech, offers a 2 + 2, inter-institutional program. Students who complete NMC's Engineering Certificate and meet the GPA requirements below will be guarenteed transfer to MTU with Junior Status in select majors in the BS degree in Engineering (See Engineering Majors) Students are selected into this program at NMC with the same admissions or curriculum transfer criteria that is used at MTU for all engineering applicants:

  • 2.75 GPA 
  • 2.0 in all individual courses.

Meeting with an Academic Advisor is required for each semester's enrollment to maintain continuity with 2 + 2 program requirements.

Traditional Application:  Students not part of the 2 + 2 program - perhaps wishing to transfer prior to completion of the Engineering Certificate -  can also apply to MTU through the traditional route. Courses on this guide will apply and early application is necessary.

Link to MTU & NMC 2 + 2 Articulation Agreement and printable model schedules for select Engineering programs (also linked to individually below) as well as Electrical Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

For more information on these programs please contact Jerry Dobek, Engineering Advisor, Biederman Building LB203C, 231-995-1271 or Academic and Career Advising Center 231-995-1040.

Engineering Majors

Various engineering majors are available. The following guide shows NMC courses to take as preparation for the following majors. Majors for which a 2 + 2 agreement have been signed are indicated and linked to a printable model schedule.

  1. Biomedical Engineering (2 + 2)
  2. Chemical Engineering (2 + 2)
  3. Civil Engineering (2 + 2)
  4. Computer Engineering
  5. Electrical Engineering (2 + 2)
  6. Environmental Engineering
  7. Geological Engineering
  8. Materials Science and Engineering
  9. Mechanical Engineering (2 + 2)

See MTU's Engineering guides for other majors.

Basic Requirements

Following this guide will complete MTA requirements and meet NMC's Associate of Science and Arts Degree Requirements.

Following the 2 + 2 agreements will also meet MTA and the ASA requirements if ENG 112 is taken as well.

Note: Courses listed below that are not numbered will work for engineering majors 1–9 listed previously. Courses only for specific program(s) are followed by the number(s) in parenthesis.

Note: If a student has already completed 24 credits in Communication, Social Science and/or Humanities but does not yet have the MTA met, the student should contact Jean Burish, MTU Transfer Office (906) 487-1621, prior to scheduling classes in these three areas to discuss options.
