This Bachelor of Science in Applied Science Completion Program is designed for students who have completed an associate degree in Mechanical, Electrical, Electro-Mechanical or similarly titled engineering technology programs. Graduates from other Engineering Technology programs will also receive favorable credit transfer. 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 through http://www.miamioh.edu/regionals/ent.

This articulation is meant to be a guide only. Your final degree requirements are established upon matriculation to Miami and are detailed in 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 admission requirements available at http://www.miamioh.edu/regionals/admission/transfer-students for transfer students 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. In addition, students must meet the general requirements for graduation from Miami which include a minimum of 30 credit hours taken from Miami and 12 of the last 30 credit hours must be taken from Miami. Students are also required to have a PC laptop.
