Major: Mechanical Engineering Technology

For students entering Fall 2013 and after
Updated July 30, 2014

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 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.
