It is very important that you receive a material academic benefit from participation in the Institute. To that end, you'll be enrolled by the University Extension in two UT-Austin courses created for the Institute. The courses are approved by the Mechanical Engineering Department and Cockrell School of Engineering and count as upper-division undergraduate technical electives. Each class will be worth three university credits for a total of six credit hours. University Extension will handle enrollment services for students, including registration and grade reporting. The credit and grades you earn will be available on an official transcript through the University's Registrar's office. You will work through your University’s registrar to transfer the credits, just as you would for any other credit transfer.
