An engineering education offers numerous opportunities and opens doors to exciting and innovative careers. Learn more about the Engineering Transfer program at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) and how we can support your educational pathway to becoming an engineer; start your journey today!
There are three Engineering Transfer degrees offered at LWTech with a focus on specific engineering fields:
These pathways follow the statewide transfer agreements for Engineering Transfer associate degree programs. Students who earn their Engineering AS-T degree, complete their lower division engineering credits and general education requirements at LWTech. When students are accepted at a Washington college or university offering bachelor’s degrees in Engineering, the AS-T degree will grant the student junior standing and best prepare them to continue in their Engineering baccalaureate program.
Join us for an Engineering Transfer information session to learn more about the program and how we can help you get started. Please find a convenient date for your schedule and RSVP to let us know you when would like to attend.
LWTech is committed to meeting our student’s needs. We offer many options for courses to accommodate our student’s busy schedules. There are day, night, hybrid, and online options for math, science, and other general education courses. Students should meet with an advisor to get guidance in registering for courses that fit their schedule.
LWTech Engineering is the only engineering transfer program in the state of Washington to offer evening/hybrid format engineering classes. Students enrolled in the evening program, taking a part-time course load can earn their AS-T in three years. Courses in the evening program are offered as hybrid classes meaning students meet for lecture on campus 1-2 times per week with additional instruction online. The evening engineering cohort has a fall quarter start.
Students enrolled in the daytime program, taking a full-time course load can earn their AS-T degree in two years. The daytime student cohorts start in both fall and spring quarters.
Our Engineering Transfer degrees are built on LWTech’s signature coursework style of instructor-led, hands-on learning. LWTech's Engineering faculty have extensive teaching and industry experience. Students will learn using new materials testing equipment, advanced prototyping systems, CNC routers, laser cutters, electronic test equipment and more. Additionally, students have access to the LWTech Innovation Lab—our ‘Maker Space’ on campus where you can work on course assignments, develop prototypes, or work on your own technical projects. Equipment throughout the college is incorporated into the program, putting LWTech’s degree a cut above other two-year colleges.
Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student's responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an advisor or counselor. Any developmental coursework a student might be required to complete may increase the program length.
All courses will be taught online during Fall 2020.
All courses will be taught online during Summer 2020.
Entry into this program requires completion of an admissions application.
In Washington state, there are numerous universities that offer engineering bachelor’s degree. LWTech Engineering Transfer students are encouraged to determine what their target bachelor’s degree program is to help plan their schedules accordingly with an LWTech advisor.
Students should contact their potential transfer institutions early in their program regarding:
At LWTech the Engineering Transfer program started in 2016. Engineering students have transferred to institutions within the statewide transfer agreement. They also transferred to institutions outside of the agreement. LWTech Engineering Students worked with their transfer institutions/programs and their LWTech transfer advisor to determine the LWTech coursework required for admission into their transfer institutions and major programs. This includes an understanding of GPA requirements for admission. Below is a list of programs and institutions that LWTech Engineering graduates transferred into:
