Is there a standard course plan for a transfer student?

It is possible to transfer to Michigan Tech Chemical Engineering from a community college or from another university.  A standard path for this would be to take two years of college work at that other institution followed by a summer at Michigan Tech and then the usual junior and senior years of chemical engineering at Michigan Tech.  The two summer classes that must be taken are:

  • CM2110 Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering I
  • CM2120 Fundamentals of Chemical Engieering II

These two classes are prerequisites to junior classes in chemical engineering and they must be completed before you may begin your junior year in chemical engineering.  It is not possible to take these two classes at the same time as junior classes.  For this reason, students who wish to graduate with two years of transfer credit must plan on either three years at Michigan Tech or they must take these two courses the summer before they start Michigan Tech junior classes in chemical engineering.

The standard transfer plan, as discussed above, is available on our handouts page.


What Chemical Engineering electives will be offered in 2015-16? 2016-17?

The schedule for chemical engineering electives is posted on the undergraduate advising web page.  This handout is updated regularly.  The posted schedule may change due to sabbaticals and other staffing issues.  Note that classes marked ** are offered only every other year.  Most classes have prerequisites; please check the Schedule of Classes for details.
