College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering programs have been a vital part of SDSU since 1881, and graduates of the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering have extended the bounds of science and improved our way of life in many ways. The College has a rich history and long tradition of providing outstanding graduates who are well prepared for exciting careers in engineering, mathematics, science and technology. The six academic departments of the College offer a broad range of major and minor programs, each with its unique features that ensure the student of both depth and breadth in their field of study. The mission of the College is to provide a rigorous, practical education for our students oriented toward problem solving; to conduct world-class research with a region emphasis; and to provide technical assistance to existing and emerging business, industry and government.

Through numerous new building projects and renovation, the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering now hosts some of the largest and most technologically advanced educational resources in the region. The new Daktronics Engineering Hall houses the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Departments and provides state-of-the-art laboratories and instructional space for those cutting edge programs. The new Architecture, Mathematics and Engineering building provides an additional 62,000 sq. ft. of space and the completely reconstructed Solberg Hall have placed SDSU at the forefront of education and research. Our new laboratories are among the largest and best equipped in the region. Our faculty combine their practical experience and theoretical knowledge from different disciplines and bring them into the classroom and our research programs. New and renovated lecture and laboratory facilities are equipped to provide a modern education and help students relate theoretical concepts to practical applications. Both undergraduate and graduate students work directly with faculty to develop engineering solutions to current and emerging problems facing our state, region and nation.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

There is an application fee of $35. Admission should be made by June 1. Minimum GPA is 2.5 out of 4.00. Applicant must be a graduate of an institution of higher learning recognized standing whose requirements are substantially the same as the SDSU department in which the advanced degree will be taken. Submission of Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required by University but is required by some departments.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Individual departments may have additional admission requirements. Applicants should inquire about such requirements from the department of interest.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to the regular application procedure, international students must also have a TOEFL score of 520 or above, evidence of available financial support for at least the first year of academic work, and a physical evaluation report to be filed with Health Services.

Same requirements as for resident.

Residency Requirements

In order to establish residency for tuition purposes you must live in South Dakota for twelve consecutive months immediately preceding the first scheduled day of classes of the semester. Attendance at a college or university controlled by the Board of Regents does not count in determining the twelve month period of residence.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

A minimum residence requirement of 22 semester hours, including at least one semester or two summer sessions of graduate work spent on the Brookings campus or at an approved resident center. Residence credit is given only for graduate credit

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

The Additive Manufacturing Lab at SDSU focuses on developing new 3d printing hardware, materials, and innovative solutions to complex problems using 3d printing technologies. Undergraduate students gain experience in manufacturing and testing samples, designing new equipment, developing new materials, using computer simulations to make design decisions, and publishing their research in peer reviewed journals for a broad audience. Students become involved in the lab through Honors thesis projects, independent studies and senior design projects. Recent students have presented their work at international conferences and IAM3D design competitions in Montreal, Boston, and New York City.

Advanced Biorefinery Laboratory

The Advanced Biorefinery Laboratory is developing the processes to produce "green" jet fuel, carbon-based electrodes of high performance batteries and other high-value products from corn stover, switchgrass and other agriculturally based renewable bio-materials.

Center for Advanced Photovoltaics

The center is focused primarily on the development of new photovoltaic devices including poly- and amorphous crystalline silicon, dye sublimated, and organic solar cells.

Engineering Extension

Engineering Extension provides consultation services for OSHA compliance.

Engineering Research

This office provides support and coordination for the research activities of the SDSU College of Engineering.

Fluids Laboratory

Undergraduate students are systematically measuring and studying the fluid velocity fields and associated sediment transport induced by different types of breaking waves using state-of-the-art 3D imaging technology. Undergraduate students can participate in research through a supplementary research grant (Research Experiences for undergraduates or REU) from the National Science Foundation (NSF). SDSU also has some funding for supporting undergraduates to conduct summer research with faculty.

Image Processing Lab

This laboratory specializes in the radiometric, geometric, and spatial calibration of satellite and airborne optical sensor systems.
