2+2 Programs

Matriculate as Transfer Student with AAS degree from Community or Technical College

Each of the programs offered by the Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management can be accessed as the second half of a "2+2" arrangement.  That is, students may complete the first two years of the program by completing an approved Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a related field at a community or technical college. Upon completion of the AAS and satisfaction of all defined pre-requisite material, a student then matriculates to UNC Charlotte to complete the Junior and Senior years of study.  See detailed description below.

AAS Transfer Program Structure

All transfer students with an approved AAS degree are evaluated against a defined set of pre-requisites and given transfer credit equivalent to the Freshman and Sophomore years when proof of the AAS degree is presented. Missing pre-requisite material is considered an entrance deficiency and the student is responsible for correcting any deficiencies by taking the appropriate coursework at either UNC Charlotte or at a community or technical college through transient study, before any follow-on course or senior-level course may be taken. Courses taken at UNC Charlotte to remediate deficiencies cannot be used towards the upper-division credit requirements of the program. Common deficiencies are in the areas of math and science.

Students transferring with an AAS degree must have satisfactorily completed the following subjects in their two-year program:
