Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Must have earned a bachelor's degree from a four-year college. Application forms must be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies Office with two offical transcripts of previous undergraduate and graduate studies. Applicants may be admitted to graduate studies unconditionally, provisionally or as special students. Applicants are admitted without discrimination because of race, color, creed or gender. Rolling admission, 2.8 or better for ABET accredited engineering program, transcript, GRE considered, but not required. A forty-five dollar processing fee is required.

DOCTORAL PROGRAMS:
Applications to doctoral programs in Electrical, Industrial and Mechanical Engineering must submit completed application forms with two official transcripts of previous undergraduate and graduate studies. Graduate Record Examination scores are required. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for international students.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Same as above.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All foreign applicants, except those from English speaking countries, must provide proof of English language proficiency by obtaining a score of 550 or better on the test of English as a foreign language (TOEFL). All foreign students should show financial certification for the required amount of money from the applicant's sponsor and the appropriate bank before an I-20 can be issued. The GRE Test must be taken.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as other students.

Residency Requirements

A minimum of three-fourths of the hours required for the master's degree must be earned in residence study at the university.

For the Doctor of Philosophy degree, the student is expected to be registered for graduate work at an accredited graduate school for at least six semesters beyond the baccalaureate degree.

The College of Engineering has the prerogative of establishing more restrictive requirements within its respective programs.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

No more than six hours of the minimal 30-hour requirement will be accepted from other institutions. A graduate course which has been completed with a grade of "B" or better may be considered for transfer to a master's program provided that it has been completed in a graduate or post-baccalaureate classification at an accredited graduate school. Exceptions are allowed for transfer from foreign institutions if the department or program provides the School of Graduate Studies with adequate documentation that the course is relevant to the degree, with appropriate content and level of instruction resulting in student competencies at least comparable to those of students taking the equivalent course at North Carolina A&T State University and that the course was taught by faculty who are qualified to teach at the master's degree level. Credit accepted by extension reduces the amount of credit that may be transferred from other institutions.

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.
