General Information

This page provides information about transferring into the ECET program from another institution. Students may transfer into the ECET program from a four year school or community college. Admission to the ECET program is preformed through the Office of Admissions.

Many students choose to obtain an A.A.S. degree before transferring to NJIT.  Most two and four year degrees in engineering or engineering technology programs transfer very well into the ECET program. In general, an A.A.S. degree represents the first two years of a four year degree in Engineering Technology.

NJIT performs transfer credit evaluation by course equivalency. For a student to begin the ECET program at the junior year they should have successfully completed most of the following courses or equivalent courses.

  • General Calculus I and II (6 credits)
  • Oral and Written Communications (6 credits)
  • Humanities / Social Science / Psychology / Political Science (6 credits)
  • Computer Programming (3 credits)
  • DC Circuits (3 credits)
  • AC Circuits (3 credits)
  • Semiconductors Electronics (3 credits)
  • Digital Logic Circuits (3 credits)
  • Introduction to Microprocessors (3 credits)
  • Communication Systems (3 Credits)
  • Computer Aided Design (2 credits)
  • Economics (3 Credits)
  • Physical Education (2 Credits)

Students who have not completed all of the above courses can still transfer to the ECET program, however theses students will have 100 and 200 level courses to complete before obtaining an ECET degree. can be used to evaluate transferable courses from other New Jersey institutions.

After Acceptance

After you are accepted to NJIT and the ECET program, follow the information below as you begin your studies.

Transfer students who enter the ECET program should check that all transfer credits have successfully transferred to NJIT. This may take up to two weeks after your acceptance. Log on to the Highlander Pipeline and view your academic transcript. Your transfer courses should have been transferred and should appear at the top of your transcript.

If you transferred from a New Jersey community college engineering technology program, all credits from the program should be accurately transferred as equivalent NJIT courses.

To determine your current position in the ECET program fill in the courses you have transfer credit for in the ECET Program of Study. Then register for classes which you have not yet completed. Register for available ECET classes first, as they fill up quickly and are the most restrictive.

If courses you expected to transfer do not appear on your transcript contact your academic advisor and verify that they have the most recent copy of your transcript.  If your transcript is missing ET or ECET courses schedule a meeting with your academic advisor, they will assist you with transferring and evaluating ET courses. If courses from other departments are missing on your transcript, for example, if a math course has not transferred, then you must visit the math department. The ET department cannot transfer or evaluate courses that are not ET courses.

Before registering you must meet with your academic advisor to have your advising hold removed. Additionally, as a new student at NJIT you must meet with your academic advisor within your first semester at NJIT. Schedule and keep an appointment to meet with your academic advisor. Do not wait until the end of the semester to schedule an appointment, appointments are limited and they fill up quickly.

If your advisor does not have any available appointments prior to the start of the semester or the close of registration, use the Engineering technology Support system to request removal of your advisor hold. Information on the support system is located on the Information for Students page.

WES Credits

World Education System credits must be individually evaluated.  Please make an appointment to meet with your academic advisor. During your appointment your advisor will review your academic records and evaluate your transfer credits.
