NMC Transfer Guide - MACRAO or MTA

To: Western Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Engineering

The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers undergraduate programs in several curricula and majors that prepare graduates for careers in a wide variety of fields. Three common characteristics of students attracted to engineering are:

  1. An interest in problem-solving
  2. Technical aptitude
  3. A strong interest in math and science

AVAILABLE MAJORS in ENGINEERING - This guide reflects these Engineering majors

  1. Aerospace Engineering*
  2. Chemical Engineering*
  3. Civil Engineering
  4. Computer Engineering*
  5. Construction Engineering*
  6. Electrical Engineering*
  7. Industrial and Entrepreneurial Engineering*
  8. Mechanical Engineering*
  9. Paper Engineering*

* EAC/ABET accredited programs

AVAILABLE MAJORS IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY - Link to Engineering and EngineeringTechnology Program Requirements on WMU site:
http://www.wmich.edu/engineer/advising/transfers/north-western.html

  1. Computer Science
  2. Engineering Design Technology
  3. Engineering Management Technology
  4. Graphic and Printing Science - Business, Computer, Multimedia, or Substrate Options
  5. Manufacturing Engineering Technology

ADMISSION CRITERIA

  1. Admission is considered after completion of Pre-Engineering curricular requirements.
  2. Minimum overall GPA of 2.0. A 2.0 grade is necessary in all required Pre-Engineering courses. Courses vary with specialty. See WMU or NMC advisor for clarification.
  3. Permission to enroll in Engineering classes at the 300 level or above will not be granted until pre-engineering courses included in this guide are completed.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

These requirements and recommendations will apply to Pre-Engineering requirements and other engineering courses at WMU; however, these courses will not necessarily satisfy the MACRAO or MTA agreement or NMC degree requirements. If students wish to receive an NMC Associate degree, they should consult with an Advisor for appropriate course elections.

NOTE: MTH 121 College Algebra and MTH 122 Trigonometry OR MTH 140 College Algebra and Trigonometry (Pre-Calc) are pre-requisites for MTH 141. Do not take only MTH 121 at NMC as WMU does not offer a stand-alone Trig class and you will have to take Pre-Calculus at WMU (thus repeating the content of MTH 121).

Humanities/Social Science

  1. Students may complete MTA or MACRAO in place of the following WMU Area requirements, but will taketwo additional General Education courses at the 300-400 level at WMU plus an upper level writing requirement (Proficiency #2 at WMU).  Consult with an Academic Advisor if this is your choice.
