The Associate in Applied Science in General Engineering Technology program is designed for students who want to earn their foundation courses before transferring to a four-year college/university to complete a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. Students may transfer courses in this program to four-year colleges and universities such as University of South Carolina, Clemson University, South Carolina State University or University of North Carolina at Charlotte. These courses may also transfer to other engineering colleges that require them, however, as with any two- or four-year college, the courses that are accepted are done so based on the curriculum established by that institution. This program may be adapted to fulfill the requirements for the first two years leading to engineering programs other than those listed above. However, not all courses will transfer to every school, so students planning to enter this program at York Technical College should meet with an Engineering Transfer advisor to plan the appropriate coursework. Students should also speak with an advisor at the four-year school of choice to determine which courses will be needed for their degree. The student should also refer to the student handbook prepared by the four-year school on transferring courses.
A minimum grade of “C” is required in all courses. Many four-year schools require a minimum GPA of 3.0 to transfer credits into engineering programs.
