NMC Transfer Guide - MTA

To: University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

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 - Competitive applicants for transfer admission will have completed prerequisite courses with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Due to the competitive nature of the Engineering programs, a 3.5 may be more realistic.

The College of Engineering offers 15 degree programs:

    • Aerospace Engineering
    • Biomedical Engineering
    • Chemical Engineering
    • Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering
    • Civil Engineering
    • Computer Engineering
    • Computer Science (Linear Algebra required at UofM, not MTH 251.)
    • Electrical Engineering
    • Engineering Physics
    • Environmental Engineering
    • Industrial & Operations Engineering (Linear Algebra required at UofM, not MTH 251.)
    • Materials Science & Engineering
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Naval Architecture/Marine Engineering
    • Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences

Applications – Students will apply directly to the College of Engineering. Contact: College of Engineering.

Application Deadline – February 1st for Fall semester; October 1 for Winter semester.

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. Phone: 734- 647-7000 or 734- 647-7101.

College of Engineering Transfer Admissions | College of Engineering

Basic Requirements:

The following courses are listed to facilitate transfer and fulfill requirements at U of M.

It is NOT required that these be completed prior to admission and transfer.

If your goal is to complete an Associate degree at NMC before transferring, see an advisor for assistance.

Required Classes

Academic Area




ENG 111 English Composition (Although ENG 111 is not required by U of M, NMC requires it as a pre-requisite for ENG 112.)


ENG 112 English Composition


Humanities and Social Science (Intellectual Breadth Requirements for College of Engineering)


The College of Engineering advises students NOT to take Humanities or Social Science credits outside of UofM unless approved by their College of Engineering advisor.

Contact the College of Engineering for approval or if you have questions: 734-647-7000 or 734-647-7101.


Natural Science


CHM 150 General Chemistry I


PHY 221 Problems and Principles of Physics I


PHY 222 Problems and Principles of Physics I
