How do I get into the ECE program?

Tennessee Tech is happy to accept transfer students. Tech's engineering curricula are designed so that the needs of students who choose to initially attend another university may be met. Every transfer student is different. To begin, you shoulc contact the ECE Department Transfer Student Advisor, Dr. Charles L. Carnal, as soon as possible. Ideally, you should call before you begin taking courses at another institution. He can give informal advice about which courses might or might not count toward an EE or CmpE degree at Tennessee Tech. When you apply for admission, an official analysis of your transfer credit will be performed, and you will be notified of transfer credits awarded. More details can be found at the ECE Transfer Student Web Page.
