Course Equivalency Credits

Many UAH Engineering Technology courses teach similar skills and knowledge that students may have acquired through previous Engineering, Science, Math, and/or Programming coursework. Credit for completion of courses identified as “equivalent” may be applied towards degree requirements.

Up to 28 hours of technical credit may be accepted as electives.
