Admission into Engineering after college?
ok so here's the deal. Me and a friend have both graduated from 2 yr programs at mohawk, which are not really related to engineering (construction technician and graphic design respectively).

From all previous sources I gathered that our 2 yr program meant nothing, so we decided to pretty much redo high school and get the required 6 U level courses.

So far we have completed physics, chem and advanced functions. Started calculus, I have completed english already and he hasn't. we both need to start our 6th course, probably gonna be bio.


This link,

Gives me the impression that even with a 2 yr program all we need is calc, chem and physics. Not sure if this is recent, or if in everyother source we just missed it (other sources said, 6 U courses or graduation from a 3 year technology program).

So is this legit? Am I reading it wrong?

If nobody knows can someone send me an email adress I can use to ask?

You should get in contact with one of the Undergraduate Academic Advisors listed here: Sally Williams I think deals with engineering 1 students so contact her.

She will be able to assist you with your particular case. You may have courses that transfer over or you may not.

I read it again and looks like I misread it. At one point it said

"Generally speaking, advanced credit could be up to 30 units if you are a well-qualified graduate of a three-year program, and at least six units if you have completed two years and performed well, provided the college work is appropriate to your chosen university program."

I thought it meant that 2 year programs were good as long as I had chem, physics and calc. It actually meant 2 years of the 3 year progam.
