Required Courses

The information below is based on the October 8, 2012 revision of the Transfer Course Plan. Interested students are strongly advised to visit the University of Minnesota Dual Degree website at http://cse.umn.edu/admissions/transferadm/dualdegree/index.php to view the official version of the Transfer Course Plan and Technical Course Equivalencies, and to obtain additional information about the program and application process.

Transfer Plan to Institute of Technology, University of Minnesota

These are the "technical" courses that are suggested students complete before applying for transfer. Applications may be made before completing all the courses. If not Dual Degree, see: www.admissions.tc.umn.edu/cle for information concerning liberal education course requirements.

Dual Degree students will take the courses suggested below plus additional courses required for their major. All liberal arts courses will transfer for credit; the liberal arts requirement at the U of M is satisfied by the requirements at Gustavus Adolphus College.

CHEN 2001 - Material and Energy Balances is now a fall semester class (no longer offered in the summer) and it is a prerequisite class for the junior sequence.

If a student transfers to the U of M after the freshman year, they will take the same classes as sophomores in Chemical Engineering and the student should graduate in three years.

A student transferring after two years will take Physical Chemistry, CHEN 2001, and perhaps a few other classes. It will take the student three years to graduate.

A student who competes three years at Gustavus Adolphus will take CHEN 2001, MATS 3011 and a few other classes. It will take the student three years to graduate.
