Engineering Transfer Curricula at MC
Engineering Science A.S. at Montgomery College
The link below takes you to the current Montgomery College catalog pages describing the Engineering Science transfer curricula. If you wish to receive an AS degree in any field of engineering, you must complete all of the requirements as listed in the current catalog or in a catalog since you first matriculated at MC. HINT1: Read carefully the catalog requirements for the Behavioral and Social Sciences Distribution in the General Education Program. The two courses that you take MUST be from different disciplines. So, for instance, you cannot use ECON201 and ECON202 for the 6 credits necessary to fulfill that requirement. HINT2: Notice that speech (SPCH108 for instance) is NOT required for an AS in Engineering Science.
If you wish to make a copy of the relevant page(s) of the MC catalog, go to Print Preview and use the arrows at the bottom of the Print Preview page to find the page numbers for the page(s) that you want to print. Then print just those pages.

Recommended Transfer Sequence for UMCP (University of Maryland, College Park)
The MC catalog description for a particular curriculum is designed to allow reasonably efficient transfer to almost any college or university with an engineering program. In order to optimize your transfer process, we provide updated transfer guides for several institutions with which we have articulated programs. Follow the links below for the most recently updated curriculum guides for transfer to UMCP. Notice that MC does not maintain a transfer sequence for Computer Engineering for UMCP since the MC computer science courses (CMSC203 and CMSC204) do not currently transfer to UMCP. A Computer Engineering program that does transfer CMSC203 and CMSC204 can be found at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Also note that UMCP does not currently have an undergraduate degree in Nuclear Engineering. If you wish to major in Nuclear Engineering, then you will need to transfer to a college or university outside the State of Maryland. For further information, please contact Dr. Donald Day at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Follow the links below for the most recently updated curriculum guides for transfer to UMBC. We are in the process of updating our articulation with the engineering programs at UMBC. At this time (June, 2014) we have only completed the articulation process with the Mechanical Engineering Department. Active links to the other programs will be added in the future.

Recommended Transfer Sequence for the Georgia Institute of Technology
This picture shows 7 of the 9 students who were enrolled at GT in 2004-5. As of 2014, about 50 students have transferred to GT. Other than those currently enrolled students, all have graduated successfully with some going on to masters and PhD degree programs..
There are two alternatives for engineering students who wish to transfer to the Georgia Institute of Technology. The two choices have different GPA and course requirements. You can transfer as a Regular Transfer Student or as a student in the Partnership Programs for Engineering. To be accepted as a Regular Transfer Student you will need an overall GPA >3.5 and a GPA >3.5 for all science, mathematics, and engineering courses. There are exceptions to this rule but we don’t recommend that you apply to Georgia Tech. unless your GPA > 3.3 in any event. Georgia Tech is highly competitive and is ranked number 4-5 in engineering in the US so you need to be extremely well prepared in order to be successful in their engineering program. The Partnership Programs for Engineering offers another possibility. If you apply for transfer to Georgia Tech. through the Partnership Programs for Engineering then you need a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 and a minimum GPA of 3.3 in all science, mathematics and engineering courses. In addition you must have completed at least 60 credits at MC and you must have taken all of the courses listed in the Appendix to the Memorandum of Understanding between Georgia Tech. and MC. HINT: If you have more than 1 or 2 repeated courses at MC, then you might have academic problems with the engineering programs at Georgia Tech.
Most of the general education courses at MC will transfer to Georgia Tech. However, there are exceptions and some MC general education courses will not transfer to Georgia Tech. If you want to be absolutely safe, then take ECON202 or ECON201, HIST202, and PHIL202 at MC. These three courses are required for all engineering majors at Georgia Tech so you can be confident that they will transfer without problems. They also transfer to UMCP and all other universities as well as satisfying AS degree requirements at MC.
RECENT CHANGES AT GEORGIA TECH
The Physics Department at Georgia Tech requires all MC transfer students to complete PHYS161, PHYS262, and PHYS263 to achieve credit for the required engineering physics courses at GT. Please note: YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED all three engineering physics courses at MC before you transfer or you will have significant problems getting credit for the PHYS course sequence.
MC transfer students who plan to major in mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech should be aware that the MC course ENES 221 Dynamics is NOT equivalent to the Georgia Tech dynamics course for mechanical engineers. The Georgia Tech course covers two additional topics not covered by MC's ENES 221. So mechanical engineers will need to repeat the Dynamics course at GT. If you think that this is unfair, contemplate the fact the GT is the 4th ranked engineering school in the country. It might be better to attend the 4th ranked school and have to repeat one course than some other alternative. Civil engineering students may transfer ENES 221 as the equivalent of the civil engineering dynamics course at Georgia Tech.
