General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

The University of Delaware seeks academically ambitious and creative applicants from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and geographic regions. As the Admissions Committee evaluates an application for admission, it weighs the rigor of the student's high school course selection, academic record (especially the trend in grades), SAT I and/or ACT scores, student essays, letters of recommendation, and personal statement.

The SAT II (subject) tests are recommended for all freshman applicants, especially those applying to the Honors Program, and if these scores are submitted, the Admissions Committee considers them in making the admissions decision.

The Admissions Committee does not consider financial need in the admissions process.

The University expects all applicants to have completed strong college preparatory course work at an accredited secondary school or certified home school program, including at least 18 credits of post-eighth-grade course work in: English, 4 years; Mathematics, 3 years (4 years recommended); Science, 3 years, 2 must include a lab (4 years recommended, 3 years with a lab recommended); History/Social Sciences, 4 years (at least 2 of the units must be history and 1 of those must be world history); Foreign Languages, 2 years of same (4 years of same recommended); Academic Electives, 2 units. An additional year of math or science may be substituted for the 4th year of history/social science. Foreign language courses taken before the ninth grade do not count. Some programs at the University require additional preparation in math and science. Prospective majors in engineering should have completed 4 years of mathematics, including trigonometry, pre-calculus, and/or calculus. Prospective majors in engineering are strongly urged to take physics, chemistry, and biology.

Recommendations

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION:
THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING SEEKS TO RECRUIT, RETAIN AND GRADUATE MORE WOMEN AND STUDENTS OF COLOR THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS TO ASSIST IN THE ACHIEVEMENT OF ACADEMIC, CAREER AND PERSONAL GOALS

• WOMEN IN ENGINEERING (WIE) - Our goal is to promote, mentor, and enable participation of women students and faculty in engineering studies and in the workplace. WIE provides activities that bring together female and male engineering students, faculty, and administrators -- as well as external representatives from industry, government agencies, and other academic institutions -- with the goal of promoting a healthy institutional climate for all members of the engineering community at UD.

• GEM - The GEM fellowship program is designed to offer opportunities for under- represented minority students to obtain MS and PhD degrees in engineering through a program of paid summer internships and graduate financial assistance.

• RESOURCES TO INSURE SUCCESSFUL ENGINEERS (RISE) - The College of Engineering at the University of Delaware is host to one of the nation's earliest and most successful minority engineering programs. Resources to Insure Successful Engineers (RISE), is a program with the mission of recruiting and encouraging academically prepared students who are native-born African American, Hispanic American, and Native American, as well as others who, as a group, are underrepresented in engineering. The prime objective of RISE is to assist these students in attaining an engineering degree.

• FAME/UD - A 4-week summer residential program to increase the participation of minorities in engineering and other science professions.


LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES:
THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING OFFERS EXCITING ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH THE SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL

• K-12 OUTREACH - Engaging and exciting programs for grades K-12 based upon cutting-edge research conducted by UD faculty, staff and students. Included in our programs and events are: Art
& Engineering; Camps; Competitions; Lending Library for Teachers; and more. The model is to excite and engage the students in the K-12 space as well as the people around them, parents, teachers and informal providers, to create a supported opportunity for experiencing engineering education. Faculty, undergrad and graduate students provide technical support for the creation of teaching modules that are: 1) implemented by K-12 Engineering staff, students or faculty; 2) borrowed by teachers in the K-12 space for use in their own classrooms; 3) used by parents, museums, informal science providers or others with an interest in engineering education. Undergraduate and graduate students also provide implementation assistance during K-12 designed events and visitations to local education venues, as well as camps. One of the unexpected outcomes of working with K-12 Engineering for the students, faculty and staff is the training in educational pedagogy and protection of minors that is a generalizable skill that each participant takes with them.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING SENIOR DESIGN: Sponsored, interdisciplinary or BME-only team-based design projects in the medical devices or research arena. Systems approach requiring design strategy and principles of reliability, safety, ethics, economic analysis, marketing, FDA regulations, and patents. Senior Design represents the capstone engineering design experience for students to integrate and apply the knowledge of their previous years of biomedical engineering education in a focused project. The design component involves establishing a problem statement, developing design criteria to solve the problem, recognizing design constraints, and executing a systematic adaptation of the design specifications to achieve the design goal by generating concepts, developing a prototype, and validating and testing the prototype against specified metrics. The student teams, while working on real-world engineering-design projects to incorporate the unique needs of external sponsors, are mentored by UD faculty.

CHEMICAL & BIOMOLECULAR ENGINEERING SENIOR DESIGN: Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Senior Design: Chemical engineering students take two semesters of capstone design in the fall and spring of their senior year. Students are required to design a chemical product as well as a process, including economic analysis. The courses are jointly taught by Chemical Engineering faculty members in conjunction with senior level engineers from industry (e.g. Engineering Department of the DuPont Company, W.L. Gore, etc…). Classes are held in a regular classroom and in a computer classroom when demonstrating ASPEN design software. The first part of the sequence emphases the design of mass transfer operations, safety, ethics, and product engineering. In the second part, a common design study is used as the basis for further instruction in relevant material not covered in other courses such as economic evaluation of a chemical process, heat integration, advanced flowsheet development, and process operation. The students are then assigned group projects and the majority of the second semester is dedicated to a small group project in design. Heavy use is made of process simulation software, such as Aspen. Students also have the option of a project in product engineering. Students perform all technical work in teams of two to four; some written reports are authored individually, others as group reports. Once the final project is started, written and oral progress reports are given to the instructors on 10-day intervals. A group written and oral report is given at the end of the semester. The student’s grade is a combination of the classroom project, the mid-term exam, the progress reports, the written report and the oral report, as well as peer and self-evaluation. The largest weight is on the common project final report and the final design report and oral presentation.

CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SENIOR DESIGN: Civil and environmental engineering students are engaged in a full year senior design experience (fall and spring of the senior year). Students are divided into multi-disciplinary teams, each of which constitutes a civil/environmental engineering firm. The teams perform the preliminary engineering for a complex, multi-discipline civil engineering project based on an actual local project. Four experienced practicing professionals serve as discipline instructors. Each team has a young practicing engineer as a mentor. The teams are required to develop: (1) a team plan for the execution of the work over two semesters, (2) a proposal to win the commission for the project, (3) an engineering report documenting the preliminary design of the project. They are also required to make formal presentations to the owner’s panel of experts for the proposal and the engineering report, plus working presentations in two progress meetings with the owner.

ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING SENIOR DESIGN: The degrees of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering require 6 credits designated as "design." Senior Design I, ELEG/CPEG 498 (3 credits) will be offered in the fall semester and Senior Design II, ELEG/CPEG 499 (3 credits) will be offered in the spring semester of the student’s senior year. The degrees of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering require that students be prepared for engineering practice through a curriculum culminating in a major design experience. In Senior Design, students apply their accumulated classroom knowledge to an Electrical or Computer Engineering design problem. Problems typically involving the design of a hardware and software systems in many potential domains including: computers/devices, robotics, signal processing, control, and communications. Students select projects from external sponsor-suggested problem or propose a self-defined problem and form a small team to address a major design problem over the two semester course sequence. Teams, typically formed from multiple disciplines, write a project proposal which describes the problem, sets goals with multiple realistic engineering constraints (e.g. performance, required interfaces, budget, etc.) and defines an approach to the problem. Design, ongoing oral and written communication, experimentation, implementation, and final testing make up the majority of class efforts. Ongoing project activity is recorded on a project web site (wiki). Each semester, mid-point and final presentations and reports which detail all aspects of the project including the incorporation of engineering standards are presented to sponsors and faculty.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING SENIOR DESIGN: Mechanical engineering students take a six-credit senior design course in the fall of the senior year. The course is structured to imitate the scenario a young engineer could experience on a company-focused design team. The students are divided into several teams, and each student team is then aligned with a company-sponsored project. When appropriate, teams may also include students from multiple engineering majors. The students in each team then discover the customers' needs and wants - along with the design constraints, benchmark the best practices for each desired function, generate design concepts, and choose the best approach to solving the design problem. Following this, the students in each team build a prototype, test it, and improve the design along with recommending a path-forward plan to the company sponsor. Additionally, based upon student interest, there could be a few teams focused on design, build, test toward the international Formula SAE student automotive competition.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

In evaluating student applications, the Admissions Office considers a broad range of criteria, including the depth and rigor of the college preparatory program and trend in grades; grades earned in specific courses, especially those related to an applicant's proposed field of study; overall grade-point index; class rank; standardized test scores; student essays; letters of recommendation; and self appraisal. With Delaware's increasing selectivity, grades of "B" and above are expected. The self-appraisal allows applicants to explain grades of "C" and below in their academic record. Recommendations from counselors and teachers, leadership qualities, and recognition in extracurricular and community activities also can support a favorable decision. Engineering programs at the University require additional preparation in math and science; prospective majors in engineering should have completed four years of mathematics, including trigonometry, pre-calculus, and/or calculus, and are strongly urged to take physics, chemistry, and biology.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to the Common Application for Undergraduate Admissions and the UD Supplement, international applicants submit an Essay, Summary of Educational Experiences, Confidential Financial Information form, and an official bank statement showing enough funds to cover their educational expenses. Non-native speakers of English are required to demonstrate proficiency in English by submitting the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or official International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) report. Some students may be required to enroll in the University's English Language Institute or another language institute before beginning studies on the campus. For all international applicants, an application fee is also required.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The University of Delaware seeks academically ambitious and creative applicants from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and geographic regions. As the Admissions Committee evaluates an application for admission, it weighs the rigor of the student's high school program, academic record (especially the trend in grades), SAT Reasoning and/or ACT with Writing scores, class rank, student essays, letters of recommendation, and personal statement. Special talents and abilities, Delaware residency, and alumni/ae affiliation are taken into consideration. As it evaluates your application, the Admissions Committee always reserves the right to consider your personal conduct and ethical behavior as a factor in its decision.

Please note that the SAT Reasoning and/or ACT with Writing must be submitted for admissions consideration. Test scores without a writing component will not be accepted. Two SAT Subject tests of the student's choosing (or an ACT with Writing) are required for home schooled applicants and strongly recommended for Honors Program applicants.

All courses currently in progress must be successfully completed and are subject to review by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee does not consider financial need in the admissions process.

The University expects all applicants to have completed strong college preparatory course work at an accredited secondary school or certified home school program, including at least 18 credits of post-eighth-grade course work in: English, 4 years; Mathematics, 3 years (4 years recommended); Science, 3 years, 2 must include a lab (4 years recommended, 3 years with a lab recommended); History/Social Sciences, 4 years (at least 2 of the units must be history and 1 of those must be world history); Foreign Languages, 2 years of same (4 years of same recommended); Academic Electives, 2 units (0-2 units recommended). An additional year of math or science may be substituted for the 4th year of history/social science. Foreign language courses taken before the ninth grade do not count. Some programs at the University require additional preparation in math and science. Prospective majors in engineering should have completed 4 years of mathematics, including trigonometry, pre-calculus, and/or calculus. Prospective majors in engineering are strongly urged to take physics, chemistry, and biology.

Residency Requirements

To qualify as a Delaware resident for in-state residency classification purposes, the person on whom the classification depends must have been domiciled in Delaware for at least twelve consecutive months as of the first day of classes in the semester or session for which in-state residency classification is sought. In-state residency classification shall apply for the entire semester or session and thereafter until changed.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS: Students from outside the University of Delaware who wish to transfer into the College of Engineering must make a formal application through the University Admissions Office. Prospective transfer students submit the Application for Transfer Admission, official post-secondary transcript(s), official high school transcript, transfer statement, and letter of recommendation. In general, transfer applicants should have a minimum 2.0 GPA in all college-level work. Certain majors are more selective and require both a higher minimum GPA and specific coursework. To be considered for admission, transfer students must be in good standing with their current or most recently attended institution. The transfer applicant's total academic credentials are considered, including previously achieved grade-point index, the type of institution attended, performance in specific courses relating to the proposed field of study, and statement of interest in attending the University of Delaware.

TO TRANSFER INTO THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING FROM WITHIN THE INSTITUTION: Students at the University of Delaware who wish to change into a major within the College of Engineering must make a formal request to the appropriate engineering department. This request may be made using a web-based form immediately after grades are posted in the fall and spring semester. See above for GPA and background information, although certain majors are more selective and require both a higher minimum GPA and specific coursework.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The University of Delaware attracts students with a multitude of interests, which explains why it's so common to find students with double-majors and multiple minors.

Additionally, the Engineering/Arts & Sciences program offers a five-year curriculum which leads to a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Arts and Sciences and a Bachelor of Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, or Mechanical Engineering from the College of Engineering. Students who elect to complete this program must fulfill all the requirements of their four-year engineering major and the college-level requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences and earn 15 credits of electives in an Arts and Sciences area of concentration. All elective courses are chosen in consultation with advisors in both Colleges so as to take every advantage of situations where a course can fulfill requirements of both the Engineering and Arts and Sciences degrees.

Also, the College of Engineering and the Lerner College of Business and Economics offer a joint 5-year program that leads to a baccalaureate degree in an engineering major and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Lerner College of Business and Economics.

The UD 4+1 programs allow students to earn a Bachelors AND Masters in 5-years of full-time study as follows: Civil & Envir 4+1; Electr & Computer 4+1; Mechanical 4+1; BS in ENG or A&S/Master of MSEG 4+1; Engineering/MBA 4+1.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Entrance requirements are established by the departments.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

The University of Delaware is a highly ranked research University. As such, our master and doctoral degree programs attract students from around the world.
Admission to the graduate programs at the University of Delaware is selective and based on the number of well-qualified applicants and the availability of faculty and facilities. Those who meet stated minimum academic requirements are not guaranteed admission.
Graduate programs at the University of Delaware each have their own unique admission requirements, funding options, deadlines, review processes and decision timelines. Understanding how your program of interest structures each of these areas is key to having a productive and positive applicant experience.
An example of minimum admission requirements may include: A baccalaureate degree in the field or in a closely allied field of science or mathematics; a minimum undergraduate grade-point average in engineering, science and mathematics courses of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; strong letters of support from former teachers or supervisors; a substantial score on the quantitative portion of the GRE per the requirements of the specific department in which the candidate is seeking admission; non-native speakers of English are required to achieve substantial scores on English proficiency tests per the requirements of the specific department in which the candidate is seeking admission.
Each graduate program reviews their own applicants at varying times. When a graduate department informs the central office they wish to admit an applicant to their program, the central office begins the transcript verification process.
Categories of Admission: 1) REGULAR STATUS is offered to students who meet all the established entrance requirements, who have a record of high scholarship in their fields of specialization, and who have the ability, interest, and maturity necessary for successful study at the graduate level in a degree program. Individuals who apply during the final year of undergraduate work and are unable to supply transcripts showing the conferral of the degree will be admitted pending the conferral of the degree. 2) PROVISIONAL ADMISSION is offered to students who are seeking admission to a degree program but lack specific prerequisites. Students with provisional status are generally not eligible for assistantships nor fellowships. 3) NON-DEGREE STATUS is available for applicants who wish to earn graduate credit but do not intend to earn a graduate degree at the University of Delaware, or who plan to ultimately apply to pursue a grad eng degree on a part-time basis. Up to 9 credits may be transferred from non-degree to degree status if/when admitted to a degree program. Admission with non-degree status implies no commitment by the University or graduate program about later admission as a regular student. Such applicants must submit official college transcripts. International applicants must submit official proof of English proficiency such as TOEFL or IELTS scores.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Please refer to the above section, as the same information applies to graduate entrance requirements for international students. In addition, International applicants are expected to demonstrate sufficient English proficiency to meet not only University of Delaware standards, but higher levels as set by individual graduate departments within the University.
After admission, international students are asked to complete the UD Graduate Confidential Financial Information Form for use by the Office of International Students and Scholars for use in the issuing of student visa related documents.
Almost all admissions are based on the presentation of final academic credentials. Please see http://www.udel.edu/gradoffice/apply/foreign.html
Incoming International students who are awarded funding in the form of a Teaching Assistantship are required to arrive early and attend a six (6) week International Teaching Assistantship program. Upon completion of the program, English skills are re-assessed to determine if the student can successfully perform the duties associated with teaching.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Graduate programs at the University of Delaware each have their own unique admission requirements, funding options, deadlines, review processes and decision timelines. Understanding how your program of interest structures each of these areas is key to having a productive and positive applicant experience. Because the University of Delaware offers over a hundred master and doctoral programs, each department responds to its own inquiries. Most graduate departments require a GRE or GMAT, but not all. Please check your program’s website to determine what test scores, if any, are required of their applicants.
Admission to graduate programs at the University of Delaware is selective and competitive based on the number of well-qualified applicants and the limits of available faculty and facilities. Those who meet the minimum academic requirements are not guaranteed admission as the University receives many more applications to graduate programs than slots available. The graduate admission committees review multiple items in making their decisions to determine who will be a good fit for the program. If you wish to be considered for a different program after receiving a rejection notice, you will need to file a new application with new documents.
See previous sections for additional information.

Residency Requirements

Students enrolled in at least 9 credit hours or in sustaining credit are considered full-time students. Those enrolled for fewer than 9 credit hours are considered part-time students, although students holding assistantships are considered full-time with six credits. Generally, a maximum load is 12 graduate credit hours; however, additional credit hours may be taken with the approval of the student's adviser and the Office of Graduate and Professional Education. A maximum course load in either summer or winter session is 7 credit hours. Permission must be obtained from the Office of Graduate and Professional Education to carry an overload in any session.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Graduate courses counted toward a degree received elsewhere may not be transferred into a degree at the University of Delaware. Credits from institutions outside of the United States are generally not transferable to the University of Delaware.
TRANSFER OF CREDITS: Students who complete UD graduate credits with the classification of CEND (Continuing Education Non-Degree) or EGOR-ND (Engineering Outreach Non-Degree) at the University of Delaware prior to matriculation in a degree program at UD may use a maximum of 9 graduate credits earned with ND (Non-Degree) classification toward a graduate degree at the University of Delaware. Up to 9 graduate credits earned at another institution prior to admission to UD, but not counting toward a degree at another institution, will be evaluated at the written request of the student. The program must complete a Transfer of Credit Form and send it to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education for approval of the transfer. The credits, but not the grades or quality points from other institutions are transferable to University of Delaware graduate records. Grade must be “B” or better to be acceptable for transfer. Matriculated students who wish to transfer credits from another institution after matriculation must have approval of the course prior to the enrollment at another institution.

CHANGE OF UD PROGRAM STATUS: In order for a University of Delaware student to change from one type of degree status to another while remaining in the same program, a Change of Classification form is required to be approved by the student’s advisor and the graduate program director and the Office of Graduate and Professional Education.
CHANGE OF UD GRADUATE PROGRAM: In order for a University of Delaware student to change from a degree in one UD graduate program to a degree in another UD graduate program in another department or college, the student is required to submit a completed admission application form to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education and follow the same procedures for admission as any other applicant.

Dual Degrees

Graduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The University of Delaware offers students the opportunity to simultaneously complete more than one graduate level degree. Each program must determine the admissibility of the applicant.

Additionally, the College of Engineering, in collaboration with the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics, offers students the opportunity to complete both a master's degree in the following engineering disciplines plus a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. Important features to these dual degree programs include:
• Your application to the dual degree program will be considered first by the desired engineering program. If you are deemed admissible in the engineering graduate program, you will automatically be considered admissible to the MBA program, and hence to the dual degree program.
• Since admission to the engineering program of choice is the first step, the only standardized test required is the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). The GMAT, normally required for MBA admission, will be waived.
• The dual degree program will double-count 15 engineering graduate credits as technical electives in the MBA program, so that the dual degree requires 63 credits rather than the 78 credits that would be required if pursuing each master's program separately.
• In order to take advantage of the 15-credit savings, you must be admitted to the dual degree program before completing either the engineering or business master's program.
Dual engineering master's/MBA programs are available as follows:
• Master of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering/MBA
• Master of Civil Engineering/MBA
• Master of Electrical & Computer Engineering/MBA
• Master of Engineering, Mechanical/MBA
• Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering/MBA
• Master of Materials Science & Engineering/MBA
