Milwaukee School of Engineering and Minnesota State College Southeast announced the creation of a new transfer agreement. Graduates of MSCS’s AAS in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program can seamlessly transfer their associate degree credits to MSOE and pursue a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering.

“Our new agreement with Minnesota State College Southeast gives students with an associate degree in electrical engineering technology the opportunity to transfer efficiently into the BSEE program at MSOE in their career path to electrical engineering,” said Dr. Robert Strangeway, MSOE professor and AAS-EET to BSEE transfer track coordinator. “Graduates of our BSEE program go on to lead successful careers. Last year’s graduates enjoyed a 100 percent placement rate and an average starting salary of $64,172.”

“MSCS is honored to work with MSOE to bring this opportunity to our students and community. We believe MSOE’s long history of forward-looking engineering curriculum coupled with MSCS’s core competencies in applied technology education will result in engineering graduates able to serve across our robust engineering and manufacturing industries,” said Travis Thul, MSCS dean of trade and technology. “We look forward to these graduates demonstrating what is possible when great institutions collaborate towards the betterment of our students, schools, and employers.”

This new agreement is a great opportunity for students to continue their education. MSCS AAS EET graduates will have the mathematical and analytical background to continue pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree at MSOE. A bachelor’s degree further enhances the marketability of the graduate and opens up career opportunities as an electrical designer, electrical engineer, electronics engineer, avionics engineer, test design engineer and more.

MSOE has several transfer agreements with many other educational institutions. This is the first agreement between MSOE and MSCS, and it was prompted by Thul, who is an MSOE alumnus. He personally understands the value in continuing one’s education after obtaining an associate degree—he earned his Associate of Applied Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Fox Valley Technical College and transferred to MSOE to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree.

Minnesota State College Southeast is a two-year technical and community college that prepares students for a lifetime of learning by providing education for employment, skill enhancement, retraining, and transfer, to meet the needs of students and the community. The Winona campus opened in 1949, merging with the Red Wing campus in 1992 and updating its name to Minnesota State College Southeast in 2016 with the change of mission to offer both technical training and the associate of arts degree. Minnesota State College Southeast is a member of Minnesota State.
