Transfer students who wish to complete the aerospace major within 2 years once they are admitted to UMD must also transfer in all the following UMD course equivalents:

To view course equivalents at your institution, visit the Transfer Credit Center  or ARTSYS

*ENAE202 is offered at UMD during the summer sessions. In some instances, we may accept a combination of a programming class (C/C++) together with an Engineering Computation course (Matlab-based) from a community college as equivalent to ENAE202. Students should contact Ms. Aileen Hentz or Dr. Robert Sanner for questions regarding course equivalency.

** ENAE283 is only available at the University of Maryland and is offered during the summer.

ENAE202 and ENAE283 must be completed before receiving permission to enroll in any junior-level aerospace courses. Prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to complete these courses at UMD during the summer. If these courses are not completed prior to starting your Aerospace degree at UMD, students should expect to take at least 3 years to complete their degree.
