Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

See undergraduate admission statement.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Upon completion of the first three semesters of course requirements, students apply for admission into their chosen major. Students are guaranteed admission if their technical GPA after three semesters is 3.2 out of 4 or higher. Students not meeting the 3.2 threshold will be admitted on a space-availability basis.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All international students are required to submit complete credentials (both high school and college). Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for admission consideration. Selection is based on the student's academic record and availability of space.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students.

Residency Requirements

To qualify for resident status, students must reside in Minnesota for at least one calendar year before the first day of class attendance.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students who have completed any post-high school coursework are considered for admission with advanced standing. Admission decisions are based on the overall GPA and grades in physical science, engineering, computer science, and mathematics. Applications must include recent transcripts from all colleges attended, reflecting all college work attempted (whether satisfactorily or not). Applications must also include a high school transcript to show whether the preparation requirements for freshman admission have been completed and high school graduation. Equivalency for technical courses has been established between the Institute of Technology and most colleges and universities in the U.S. Technical courses in which a grade of D has been earned do not transfer.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 189
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 109

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A dual degree program exists between thirty six (public and private) colleges and the College of Science and Engineering (CSE). Usually students study three years at the first college before transferring to CSE to complete an engineering program. Upon graduation the student also gets a bachelors degree from the first college. Features: courses guaranteed to transfer to CSE, somewhat lower admissions criteria acknowledging third year of technical study, automatic satisfaction of the University of Minnesota liberal education requirements.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Any student with a US bachelor's degree or a comparable foreign degree from a recognized college or university may apply to the dean of the Graduate School. Applicants with the necessary background for their chosen major field, an excellent scholastic record from an approved college or university, and appropriate professional qualifications may be admitted for graduate work on recommendation of the graduate faculty in the proposed major field & approval of the dean of the Graduate School. Requests for applications should be send to the director of graduate studies in the individual program. Requests should specify the applicant's proposed major field & emphasis, degree objective, & date of entry. Applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of the term in which they wish to enter but no more than one year in advance.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

See above. Requirements vary depending upon department within the College of Science and Engineering.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Same as for domestic students.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students.

Residency Requirements

See undergraduate residency requirements.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Master's degree students are required by the Graduate School to complete at least 60 percent of the coursework for their offical degree programs (excluding thesis credits) as registered U of MN Grad School students. With the approval of the adviser, the director of grad studies in the major (and minor, if applicable), & the Grad School, the transfer of up to 40% of the degree program is permitted from other recognized graduate schools; adult special, summer session and Univ. College registrations at the U of MN.
For the doctoral degree, graduate credits earned at other recognized graduate institutions may be applied to doctoral degrees if the coursework was taken as an enrolled, graduate-degree-seeking student & the credits appear on the official transcript. In the case of a transfer from a non-US institution, the credits must have been earned in a program judged by the Grad School to be comparable to a graduate degree program of a regionally accredited institution in the US.

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.
