Transfer Credit Limit (for ECE)

(1) To graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical, Electrical with a Bio-Option, or Computer Engineering from UW, students must successfully complete at least 30 hours of EE or BE courses from the University of Wyoming.

(2) Courses will be considered for preapproved transfer as a UW EE course only if they are taken from an institution in the attached list.  

(3) After taking a course which has not been preapproved, a student may apply to substitute it for a UW EE course.  The UW ECE department will then test that student to determine if they have learned the specified material.  If they pass the examination, credit will be transferred for that course on a one-time basis. 

(4) Students enrolled in the International Engineering Option, Minor, or Study Abroad will have their international courses considered for preapproved transfer. They may also petition to have the hours required in item (1) lowered.
