NMC Transfer Guide

To: University of Michigan - Main Campus

Program: Engineering

The knowledge and discipline gained from undergraduate engineering study is excellent preparation for careers in business, law, and medicine. Many graduates continue on for master's or doctorate degrees. Professional Engineering licensure usually requires four years of experience followed by a qualifying exam offered by the state in which the license is sought.

ADMISSION CRITERIA

GPA - The College of Engineering offers 15 degree programs. For admission consideration, U of M will compute your GPA two different ways:

  1. cumulative GPA and
  2. GPA centered around the required courses needed to transfer into the program (math & science)

    Admission to the various programs is competitive. Completion of the grade points listed below does not guarantee admission into the given program.
    • Aerospace Engineering – 3.0
    • Earth Systems Science & Engineering – 3.0
    • Biomedical Engineering – 3.5
    • Chemical Engineering – 3.4
    • Civil Engineering – 3.2
    • Computer Engineering – 3.5
    • Computer Science – 3.5
    • Electrical Engineering – 3.5
    • Engineering Physics – 3.0
    • Environmental Engineering – 3.2
    • Industrial & Operations Engineering – 3.0
    • Materials Science & Engineering – 3.0
    • Mechanical Engineering – 3.3
    • Naval Architecture/Marine Engineering – 3.0
    • Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences – 3.5

Applications – Students will apply directly to the College of Engineering. Contact: College of Engineering. Phone: (734) 647-7101

Status – Students are expected to be at or near junior level (55 or more semester credits) and have completed all prerequisite courses and most of the humanities and social science electives to be eligible for admission to the School of Engineering.

Application Deadlines – March 1st for Fall semester, October 1st for Winter.

Transfer Credits - 2.0 is the minimum grade required to transfer courses to U of M.  CLEP credits/scores and online or placement exam credits are not accepted; only AP test credit scores will be accepted.  Contact: College of Engineering for more information (734) 647-7101.

Intellectual Breadth Requirement: Humanities and Social Science

Credits

16 combined credits in Humanities, Social Science and Professional and Creative Development (PCDC) are required for graduation from the College of Engineering. A minimum of 3 credits from the Humanities area must be taken. Four of these credits are to be from PCDC. The remaining 9 can be from either Social Science or Humanities. While it is not required that these be completed for admission consideration, it is encouraged to complete as much as possible prior to transfer.
