Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) Transfer Students
The following information applies to students who are earning an Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering degree from a Maryland public community college. If you do not fall within this category, please visit our transfer student page.
About the ASE Degree
The ASE was developed to help ease students’ transfer from two-year to four-year engineering programs and to help expand the pipeline into engineering careers. It is a transfer-oriented degree built around an outcomes-based statewide agreement. The ASE degree is designed to transfer as a degree, rather than on a course-by-course basis, into parallel four-year engineering programs in Maryland.
Please note that currently not all Maryland community colleges offer the ASE degree. Be sure to check with your community college to make sure the degree is available. For more information on the degree program, please visit the Maryland Higher Education Commission ASE Website.
The ASE degree does not guarantee admission into the A. James Clark School of Engineering. ASE transfer students will need to meet the gateway requirements outlined by the Clark School.
The transfer admissions process for the Clark School of Engineering is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Clark School's Undergraduate Advising Office. We strongly encourage prospective transfer students to contact these offices so they can learn about the transfer admissions process and the requirements for admissions into the Engineering programs.

ENEE101/ENEE200 Information for Transfer Students
The ECE Department recently made a change to its curriculum for both Electrical & Computer Engineering, adding the course ENEE101 Introduction to Electrical & Computer Engineering. The ENEE101 course is designed to introduce students to topics in ECE, including engineering ethics. Students transferring from other institutions, may be able to fulfill this course requirement in the following manner, based on the student's situation:
Enroll in ENEE101: Transfer students who have not taken any transferable ECE courses may enroll in ENEE101.
ENEE101 Equivalent: Students who have taken a course similar to ENEE101 may have the course evaluated by sending a copy of the course syllabus to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ENEE200 Option: Transfer students who have taken transferable ECE courses at their previous institution, can opt to enroll in ENEE200 Social and Ethical Dimension of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology at UMD. ENEE200 would replace ENEE101.
- ENEE200 Equivalent: Students who have taken a course similar to ENEE200 and have taken transferable ECE courses at their previous institution, may have the course evaluated by sending a copy of the course syllabus to email@example.com.
