General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Admission requirements are established by the Board of Regents, Faculty Senate, and in some cases, individual schools, colleges and departments. Admission is competitive; it is not possible to admit all qualified applicants. Students with the strongest qualifications, including grades earned, academic courses taken (such as honors, advanced placement, and college level courses), and admission test scores, will have the greatest chances of admission. For current information on applying to UW-Madison contact the Office of Admissions at 608/262-3961 or on.wisconsin@mail.admin.wisc.edu

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

To be considered for admission to UW-Madison and direct admission to the College of Engineering (CoE), students need to indicate an engineering major or engineering undecided as their first choice on their application. Directly admitted students need to meet progression requirements at the end of the first year to guarantee advancement in that program.

To be considered for admission to the CoE as a freshman, most admitted students complete 19-22 units of high school coursework, 4 units of English, 4 units of math, 3-4 units of social studies, 3-4 units of science, 3-4 units of a single foreign language, and 2 units of additional academics/fine arts.

Students for whom English is not their first language and who have studied in a language other than English, must take an official test of English as a foreign language. UW-Madison accepts both the TOEFL and the IELTS tests.

See https://www.admissions.wisc.edu/apply/freshman/requirements.php for detailed admissions requirements.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

To automatically progress in a College of Engineering (CoE) degree program after direct admission or to switch between engineering degree programs, students must complete the following requirements after their first two semesters of residency at UW-Madison:
â€" 24 credits completed at UW-Madison. Special topics, independent study, seminar, pass/fail, and credit/no credit courses will not be included in the 24 credits except for required InterEGR 110 and English as a Second Language courses.
â€" General Education Communications Part A (Comm A) requirement. If Comm A is not completed as a graded course at UW-Madison (i.e. completed through placement test, AP/IB, or transfer credit), then a liberal studies course of at least 3 credits with a breadth designation of Humanities, Literature, or Social Sciences must be taken on a graded basis at UW-Madison.
â€" Introduction to Engineering: InterEGR 110
â€" Math course sequence through Math 222 or Math 276
â€" Four core courses, required for engineering degree programs, completed at UW-Madison (courses that fulfill the 4 core course requirement are specified in regulation 3 at: http://UGregulations.engr.wisc.edu)
â€" Core and Overall GPA requirements must be satisfied as defined by CoE departments for each engineering degree program (http://progression.engr.wisc.edu). All graded UW-Madison courses referenced in the 4 core course requirements and any departmental engineering courses level 200 or above will be counted in the Core GPA (excludes EPD, InterEGR, special topics, independent study, and seminar courses). All graded UW-Madison courses are counted in the Overall GPA. For one and only one of these core courses that a student has repeated, the more recent of the two grades will be used in the calculation of Core and Overall GPAs. Students may not be on academic probation for GPA reasons for automatic completion of first year progression requirements.
Students who do not meet the first year progression requirements to automatically progress in a degree program can be considered for non-automatic progression or extension.

Residency Requirements

30 credits in residence in the College of Engineering, including 15 credits of work in the degree-granting department; last two semesters in residence in the College as a full-time student.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students may apply for transfer admission to the College of Engineering at UW-Madison if they have earned more than 24 graded transferable college credits and not more than 80 transferable semester credits. Individuals who have already earned an undergraduate degree are not eligible to apply.

To be considered for admission to the College of Engineering as an off-campus transfer student, students must meet the university’s general transfer admission requirements. Most admitted transfer students establish a strong foundation in calculus, chemistry, physics, English composition, liberal studies, and other courses relevant to their intended engineering program. An Introduction to Engineering course is recommended but not required for transfer students.

Soon after notification of admission to the College of Engineering, transfer students will be invited to submit a supplemental application to meet progression in intended program. If the application is approved, they may continue in their program needing to fulfill only the graduation requirements after transfer.

Students who do not meet progression requirements before transfer must do so after transfer by meeting meet course, credit, and CoE departmental GPA requirements in two semesters in residency.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 37
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 23

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.
