The Electrical Engineering Technology 2+2 Program is for students who have completed an Associates of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a related field prior to enrolling at UNC Charlotte. Students in the 2+2 program must complete all Prerequisite Courses either at their prior instution or within their first year at UNC Charlotte. In addition, the must complete the 64 credit hour Upper division curriculum.
Transfer admission into the Department occurs in one of two situations:
- Transfer applicants not having the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree or its equivalent must meet general University admission requirements.
- Transfer applicants with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree must:
- Hold an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a field appropriate to the option they plan to enter. Acceptable AAS degrees include Architectural, Automation, Building Construction, Civil, Construction, Computer, Controls, Design and Drafting, Electrical, Electronics, Environmental, Fire Protection, Fire Science, Industrial, Instrumentation, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Optics, Robotics, Surveying or similar title with curriculum acceptable to the department. A minimum GPA of 2.2 (out of 4.0) in the AAS degree is required.
- Have completed satisfactorily the prerequisite background courses for the option they plan to enter (missing background courses may be taken at UNC Charlotte).
Acceptance of a completed AAS degree indicates the acceptance of up to 64 semester credit hours toward the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree program only. These hours may not be valid toward other degree programs at UNC Charlotte.
