College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The fundamental purpose of the Institute is to be a leader in educating undergraduate students in engineering, science, and mathematics in an environment of individual attention and support. Rose-Hulman prepares graduates to be successful in their profession and as outstanding citizens. The various curricula offered by Rose-Hulman also provide a broad and valuable analytical background for graduates who choose to pursue careers in fields such as business, the social sciences, medicine, and law, or who wish to continue their education in graduate school. The Institute graduates scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who are technically competent and creative, and who are aware of the roles of engineering, math, and science in solving social problems. To achieve these goals, Rose-Hulman provides students the basic knowledge and fundamental principles on which science and engineering are based. Students are taught to be critical thinkers who are innovative in their approaches to problem solving. The Institute incorporates a hands-on, project-based approach to its curriculum. In addition, students are introduced to social and philosophical issues with which they must be concerned, both personally and professionally. Of the many qualities which distinguish Rose-Hulman and make fulfillment of its educational purposes possible, three are most important. First, Rose-Hulman maintains high admissions standards so that every student who is admitted should be able to complete the baccalaureate program. A second, closely related quality is that Rose-Hulman remains a small, primarily undergraduate, institution by choice because of our commitment to providing students with personalized attention to meeting their educational and personal needs. Finally, every effort is made to recruit and encourage professors who believe that teaching is their primary responsibility. Although Rose-Hulman professors maintain their professional competence through such activities as continuing education, consulting, research, and writing, a "publish or perish" atmosphere does not exist on the Rose-Hulman campus. Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is concerned with the student as an individual and is dedicated to excellence in the character and performance of students and teachers alike.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Freshmen (applied to all freshmen) admitted on the basis of certain requirements as listed below:

A. Secondary school record.
B. The results of the SAT or ACT tests.
C. A recommendation from a high school counselor or principal.
D. A personal interview if possible. (We also recommend a visit to the campus.)

Applicants should have a minimum of 16 credits from an accredited secondary school as follows:

English 4 Years
Mathematics (Algebra, Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry) 4 Years
Chemistry 1 Year
Physics 1 Year
Social Sciences 2 Years
Elective Subjects 4 Years

Desirable high school electives include Advanced Placement Courses, Calculus, Chemistry II, Physics II or Computer Programming.

Most of our freshmen rank in the top 6% of their high school class, and applicants should rank at least in the top 25%. We will give additional consideration to the applications if the applicants have shown grade improvement from the junior to senior year, especially in math and science courses. We will also consider the intensity of the competition within the school.

We urge applicants to take the ACT or SAT in their junior year or early in their senior year. If they're happy with those scores, and upon their request, we'll give them early decisions on admission.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

A completed International Student Application
SAT-I or ACT results
An official copy of the secondary school record
An official copy of the "Test of English as a Foreign Language"(TOEFL) report, if English is not your native language

Residency Requirements

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer admission to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is dependent upon college work completed. Students interested in transfer should have completed a minimum of a full year of calculus as well as chemistry and calculus-based physics. While the high school record and SAT/ACT test results are of interest, they are not considered as heavily as current college work. To be competitive for transfer, a student should have at least a 3.0 GPA. Specific grades in mathematics and science courses will play a major part in an admission decision.

Applications for transfer admission should be made after the completion of the fall term. The deadline for transfer application is July 15. An admission decision will be made soon after receiving all parts of the application. At a later date, a preliminary credit evaluation will be made. A grade of "C" or higher in a course must be earned for credit to be transferred.

A student should make a final decision about transferring as soon as possible. A enrollment deposit of $50 is required for a student to be officially included in the Rose-Hulman student body.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 6
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 13

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.
