An agreement between Lehigh Carbon Community College and Bloomsburg University will streamline students’ ability to pursue a career in electronics engineering technology.
Unique to this agreement is that transfer credits will also be accepted from Career and Technical Education centers, creating a seamless pathway from Lehigh Career and Technical Institute, Carbon Career and Technical Institute and Schuylkill Technology Center to Bloomsburg University.
Students who apply for dual admission and graduate with their associate in applied science degree in electrical engineering technology from LCCC and fulfill BU’s transfer requirements are guaranteed admission to Bloomsburg with at least full junior standing. All 68 credits for the EET program at LCCC will transfer to BU’s program, according to the Schnecksville-based community college.
This agreement provides a program of study that includes a sequence of technical courses and industrial experience leading from the associate degree to bachelor’s credentials. Community college graduates can obtain a quality education at a low cost and provide the region and state with qualified engineering technology graduates, the college said.
LCCC students must complete the transfer application by May 1 for entrance into the following fall semester at BU and must enroll at Bloomsburg within one year of graduation. A minimum 2.0 grade point average is required for admission. Bloomsburg’s program coordinator in Electronics Engineering Technology will meet with dual admitted students to ensure they are on track with transferable courses and admissions.
