Students accustomed to Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology (BS-EET) transfer program will see changes beginning in Fall 2013. The first class of AAS-EET to BSEE (Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering) students will enroll and the last class of BS-EET students will be accepted. Those incoming students will have the opportunity to pursue the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering via a new AAS-EET to BSEE Transfer Track or the option of pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in EET. Students who are currently enrolled in the BS-EET program will be able to complete their degree. Starting in Fall 2014, the BS-EET program will be phased out as the remaining BS-EET students complete their degrees.

MSOE has gained extensive transfer experience over the four decades that AAS electronics graduates have entered the BS-EET program at MSOE. The last ten years of AAS-EET to BS-EET transfer agreements has refined that experience. MSOE has now developed a transfer track for AAS-EET graduates to efficiently transition into the BSEE program. The track can nominally be completed on a full-time basis in two years if summers are utilized. A part-time evening track also runs simultaneously. Both the full-time and part-time AAS-EET to BSEE tracks are evening-based to ensure required courses run as scheduled in the curriculum tracks.

The AAS-EET to BSEE Transfer Track, like the predecessor BS-EET transfer program, is customized with bridge courses to facilitate the coordinated transition of AAS-EET graduates into the baccalaureate university environment at MSOE. Curricular coordination and transfer agreements between technical / two-year colleges and MSOE will continue as essential elements to support the success of the AAS-EET transfer students at MSOE.

MSOE is an independent, non-profit university with about 2,500 students. MSOE offers 20 bachelor’s degrees and nine master’s degrees in engineering, business, mathematics and nursing. The university has a national academic reputation; longstanding ties to business and industry; dedicated professors with real-world experience; a 94% placement rate; and the highest average starting and mid-career salaries of any Wisconsin university according to PayScale, Inc. MSOE graduates are well-rounded, technologically experienced and highly productive professionals and leaders.
