The Engineering Transfer Program provides Madison College students with a clear pathway for transfer to the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering (COE). Admission to the UW-Madison COE is highly competitive; therefore, Madison College students are encouraged to apply to multiple transfer institutions. Both UW-Milwaukee and UW-Platteville, for example, have excellent engineering programs.

Please Note: Students who are not part of the former Blueprint program (guaranteed admission) should follow the standard UW-Madison and COE transfer admission guidelines. Click here for a list of Course Transfer Equivalencies (PDF, 54KB).

In addition to this list of equivalent courses, students should use the curriculum sheets below to prepare for admission to the intended engineering major. These course suggestions are specific to the UW-Madison COE. However, most of the courses will transfer to any 4-year engineering institution. All engineering transfer students are faculty advised by Jennifer Jackowski (Chemistry faculty) and Jeff Havens (Mathematics faculty). Advising hours are held weekly during the Fall and Spring semesters. For specific details about advising days and times, click on one of the curriculum sheets below to display contact information for the Engineering Transfer Coordinator.

Suggested two-year curriculum sheets for specific engineering disciplines:

Curriculum Sheet: The Blueprint course requirements are incorporated into a suggested curriculum (PDF, 110KB) for an Associate in Science degree. The curriculum includes a required course, Introduction to Engineering, which helps students explore the profession and obtain hands-on experience with a client-centered engineering design project. The curriculum also includes additional recommended courses that may be used to fulfill COE degree requirements depending upon the student’s specified engineering program.

Students apply under the Liberal Arts Transfer - Engineering option.
