Engineering Majors Transfer Information

Use this link to MC-Rockville's Engineering Transfer Information Page for General Information -- Faculty & Facilities; A Description of the Field of Engineering; Concentrations ("majors") & Curricula; Courses (detailed descriptions & current course home pages); Articulation (transfer arrangements with specific 4-yr. schools); and Scholarships & Awards.  Engineering majors not offered in the state of Maryland (Ocean Engineering, Engineering of Mines, etc.) may be available at other public institutions at in-state prices through the Academic Common Market.

Undecided About a Major?

You're not alone.  Most college students change their majors three times before finally graduating.  Four-year institutions can admit you into an undecided category while you're making up your mind.  Remember that some majors have very specific lower-level requirements, so you should be in the process of exploring majors as you go along.  Try some of these links to help you explore careers & majors:

The Academic Common Market

When Maryland Students Want to Major in Ocean Engineering, Commercial Music, or Fabric Design......they look into the Academic Common Market!  

Residents of 15 states may participate in the Southern Regional Education Board's Academic Common Market, an agreement that enables students to pursue unique majors offered at public institutions in the other SREB states while paying in-state tuition. Savings to both states and students are significant. The state saves because the Common Market provides costly, specialized programs that otherwise would have to be duplicated.

If the public institutions in Maryland do not offer degree programs in a student's field of study, it may be possible to arrange a waiver of out-of-state tuition to attend a cooperating public institution of higher education in another participating state. 

Through a pilot arrangement with the Electronic Campus of the Southern Regional Education Board, some degree programs are being offered electronically at in-state tuition rates. For more information about these programs, click here.

The number of programs offered is revised annually as states tailor their participation in the Academic Common Market as part of their planning for higher education.

Peruse, if you will, this impressive array of majors and institutions available to Maryland residents!
