∆Classes chosen in major must be different from courses used for Core requirements.

+ The selection of Engineering Electives depends on the student’s engineering discipline and requirement of the transfer institution. Additional courses beyond the minimum of 12 hours may be required to fulfill prerequisites for the transfer institution. It is imperative that students consult engineering advisors at the transfer institutions as soon as possible. The guidelines shown below satisfy Tyler Junior College’s engineering degree requirements; however, the guidelines may be adjusted on a case-by-case basis by the Engineering/ Physical Sciences Department Chair depending on the requirements of the transfer institution. The guidelines for engineering electives:

1. Mechanical Engineering: ENGR 1201, ENGR 1304, ENGR 2301, ENGR 2302, and choose between CHEM 1412 (required at Texas A&M), ENGR 2304, ENGR 2305/2105 and ENGR 2305/2105.

2. Civil Engineering: ENGR 1201, ENGR 1304, ENGR 2301, ENGR 2302, and choose between CHEM 1412 (required at Texas A&M), ENGR 2304, and GEOL 1403.

3. Electrical Engineering: ENGR 1201, ENGR 2304, ENGR 2305/2105, and COSC 1336.

4. Chemical Engineering: ENGR 1201, ENGR 1304, CHEM 1412, CHEM 2423, and CHEM 2425.

Students interested in engineering disciplines not listed above should consult with the Department Chair of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

Some institutions of higher education in the State of Texas participate in voluntary transfer compacts for Engineering to foster enhanced transfer processes for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in Civil, Electrical, Industrial, or Mechanical engineering. Students should refer to the following link to access the latest list of participating schools for the voluntary compacts: http://www.thecb.state.tx.us/index.cfm?objectid=C02EE263-D0D4-CB89-63334BECB85CB617.
