Admission Requirements

In addition to meeting the Graduate School requirements for admission, applicants must have an undergraduate grade-point average of at least 2.75 (A = 4.0) in engineering, mathematics, and physical science courses. Applicants should have a baccalaureate degree in an engineering discipline from an ABET-accredited program. Applicants who completed a non-ABET accredited program or whose undergraduate studies were in a country other than the United States must have a baccalaureate degree in an engineering discipline which is comparable to the United States’ bachelor’s degree equivalent, and must take the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) (verbal, quantitative and analytical portions) to support their application. Applicants from selected areas of mathematical and physical science will be considered for admission on an individual basis. In cases where the applicant has not completed the prerequisites for core or elective courses, the applicant may be required to complete those courses as “not for graduate credit”.

In exceptional cases, the graduate admissions committee may consider applicants who meet all of the Graduate School admission standards but who do not meet certain specified program admission requirements. The committee may consider other evidence that indicates high promise of the applicant’s success in the program. Such supportive evidence may include high scores on the GRE, professional registration, extensive professional experience, professional publications or satisfactory graduate-level work.
