Thank you for your interest in the Electrical & Computer Engineering programs at the University of Maryland. This page contains useful information for prospective transfer students interested in one of our majors.
All of the programs in the A. James Clark School of Engineering are limited enrollment programs, meaning that applicants have to meet specific gateway course requirements for admissions into these programs. The transfer admissions process for the Clark School of Engineering is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Clark School's Undergraduate Advising Office. We strongly encourage prospective transfer students to contact these offices so they can learn about the transfer admissions process and the requirements for admissions into the Engineering programs.
Transfer Credit Information
The Transfer Credit Services (TCS) at the University of Maryland can provide students with information on courses that can transfer to UMD. Through the TCS, students can also submit course syllabi for evaluation of courses that do not currently transfer to our institution.
The Pre-Transfer Advising Office at the University provides support to prospective transfer students. Pre-Transfer Advisors help students determine how previous coursework will apply to University of Maryland degrees, identify remaining general education and major requirements, and estimate time to degree.
ENEE101/ENEE200 Information for Transfer Students
The ECE Department recently made a change to its curriculum for both Electrical & Computer Engineering, adding the course ENEE101 Introduction to Electrical & Computer Engineering. The ENEE101 course is designed to introduce students to topics in ECE, including engineering ethics. Students transferring from other institutions, may be able to fulfill this course requirement in the following manner, based on the student's situation:
- Enroll in ENEE101: Transfer students who have not taken any transferable ECE courses may enroll in ENEE101.
- ENEE101 Equivalent: Students who have taken a course similar to ENEE101 may have the course evaluated by sending a copy of the course syllabus to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- ENEE200 Option: Transfer students who have taken transferable ECE courses at their previous institution, can opt to enroll in ENEE200 Social and Ethical Dimension of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology at UMD. ENEE200 would replace ENEE101.
- ENEE200 Equivalent: Students who have taken a course similar to ENEE200 and have taken transferable ECE courses at their previous institution, may have the course evaluated by sending a copy of the course syllabus to email@example.com.
Any questions may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
