Miami/Sinclair create dual admissions
for engineering technology
of Sinclair Community College and the Middletown and
Hamilton campuses of Miami University have announced
a dual-admission agreement for Engineering Technology
students. The agreement allows Sinclair’s associate
degree Engineering Technology students to transfer
to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Technology
programs at Miami Middletown and Miami Hamilton.
The agreement was announced jointly by Robert E. Speckert,
Professor and Chair of the Department of Engineering
Technology at Miami’s regional campuses, and
Dr. George Sehi, Dean of Engineering and Industrial
Technologies at Sinclair. The dual-admission agreement
is only between the Engineering Technologies programs
of the two schools. The initial programs to be implemented
will be Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology,
Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Automation
and Control Engineering Technology.
“This agreement clarifies the status, treatment
and benefits for students who choose to transfer from
Sinclair to either of these Miami campuses after completing
one of the dual-admissions programs covered in the
articulation agreement,” said Sinclair’s
The determination of requirements for the Bachelor
of Science degree in Engineering Technology will be
the responsibility of the Miami campuses.
“"We are pleased to have this Dual Admission
agreement with Sinclair Community College,”
said Miami’s Professor Speckert. “This
agreement further facilitates the pathway for students
to complete their associate degree at Sinclair then
continue seamlessly into the bachelor's degree in
Engineering Technology at Miami University. What's
great for the students is that our bachelor’s
degree can be completed during the evenings. This
enables students to work while going to school or
they can complete the bachelor’s degree portion
as a full time student."
Sinclair students who wish to take advantage of the
program will apply for admission to Sinclair and Miami
University Hamilton or Middletown simultaneously.
Credits will be officially transferred with Sinclair
quarter hours converted to Miami semester hours.
Sinclair students continuing to Miami’s Middletown
and Hamilton campuses will participate in an assessment
program and orientation, advising and registration
programs. Sinclair students will have access to any
student services afforded to all Miami students including
library resources, academic advising and other similar
resources. They will be issued a Miami I.D. card and
the Miami application fee will be waived.
Sinclair curriculum included in the transfer agreement
includes some English, Communication Arts, Economics,
Math, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Technologies
courses. Students interested in learning more about
