Bachelor of Science in Applied Science—Completion Program

Major: Mechanical Engineering Technology

For students entering Fall 2012 and after
Updated April 27, 2013

This Bachelor in Science in Applied Science Completion Program is designed for students who have completed an associate degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Electro-Mechanical or similarly-titled engineering technology programs. Graduates from other engineering technology programs will also receive favorable credit transfer. Through this program you can complete your BS degree by completing two-years of additional credit hours beyond your associate degree. Further information is available on this website.

This articulation is meant to be a guide only. Your final degree requirements are established upon matriculation to Miami and are detailed on your Degree Audit Report (DAR) provided by Miami. Work closely with a Miami advisor (listed below) to clarify final requirements. Students entering this program must meet all Miami University admission requirements or in the Miami Bulletin. For students who graduated from high school after 1985, these requirements include a foreign language in high school (two years) or college (one year). Students who do not meet these requirements at admission will still be admitted but must make up any deficiencies prior to graduating from Miami.

There are four areas of program requirements. About one-half of these requirements will be met while completing your associate degree. All credits earned with a grade of C or better will be transferred to Miami. In addition, students must meet the general requirements for graduation from Miami which include a minimum of 32 credit hours taken from Miami and 12 of the last 20 credit hours must be taken from Miami.

  1. Complete your associate degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
  2. Complete the Ohio Transfer Module at your institution. This Module is available at https://www.ohiohighered.org/transfer/transfermodule/modules. Click on your college. Once complete, have the registrar at your college stamp your transcript: “Ohio Transfer Module Complete”. Advising for this module is available at your college. See the registrar or advising office.
  3. Complete general education requirements specified by the Engineering Technology (ENT) department. *Included in the Ohio Transfer Module.
