Engineering Bachelor's Degree Options
Piedmont Technical College has developed agreements that provide options for transfer into three Bachelor's Degree programs: the USC Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering programs; SCSU’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology (BSEET) degree or the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSMET) degree programs; and USC Upstate’s Engineering Technology Management B.S. program.
University of South Carolina Columbia
The Mechanical and Electrical Engineering transfer options are designed to facilitate the transfer of PTC students into the USC Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering programs. Students will enroll in the Associate in Science program and take courses that are the equivalent of the first year of USC's electrical engineering or mechanical engineering B. S. program.
For more information on the Transfer Options, contact Bradley Griggs.
The comprehensive transfer program allows students who complete their Associate of Science degree in either MET or EET at PTC to transfer their courses into SCSU’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology (BSEET) degree or the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSMET) degree programs. Students in this program can continue attending classes on the PTC campus, so no commute to Orangeburg is necessary.
