College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The School of Engineering has facilities and programs in six major buildings on its east and west campuses, Edwards Campus and at the Medical Center in Kansas City. Engineering is also home to numerous research centers, laboratories, and institutes, all supported by substantial external funding. Research activities in these centers transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, and allow multiple perspectives and expertise to focus on broad research programs of national significance. Major interdisciplinary centers include the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis; the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets; Information and Telecommunications Technology Center; the Kansas University Transportation Center; and the Bioengineering Research Center.

Engineering faculty members are drawn from engineering and the sciences, and some hold joint appointments with the School of Pharmacy (Pharmaceutical Chemistry).

Combined undergraduate programs are available for students interested in pursuing joint degrees in Business/Civil or Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering/Biomedical, Chemical Engineering/Environmental and Chemical/Pre-medical. Undergraduate engineering students may minor in dozens of areas of study within the other College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and other professional schools at the University of Kansas. There are extensive Study Abroad opportunities available.

Most departments have more than one master’s program to meet the interest of students with different career goals. Traditional and Fast Track Ph.D. programs are available. The latter are for exceptionally qualified students who intend to follow a research or university career path.

The School of Engineering Career Center helps students who seek permanent employment and internships in corporations and agencies worldwide.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

The applicant must hold a BS degree in engineering or a related discipline, provide official transcripts, have at least a 3.0 undergraduate grade point average, three letters of recommendation and must pay an application fee. Online domestic applications cost $65; international applications cost $85. Supplemental application materials, including GRE requirements, vary by program.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Same as above.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

English Proficiency
TOEFL (iBT):
Regular Admission - reading, listening, and writing all parts at least 20
Provisional Admission - reading, listening, and writing all parts at least 18

OR

Graduation with a baccalaureate degree (or higher) earned in residence from an accredited English-medium U.S. institution or a college or university in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, English-speaking province of Canada, or an English-speaking Caribbean country, with instruction conducted in English. Degrees earned online may not be used to verify English proficiency.

Financial Documentation
Proof of financial support required.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as regular admission. International students seeking F-1 status must meet the standards of Regular Admission. Provisional admission is not sufficient to issue the Form I-20.

Residency Requirements

Resident tuition classification is determined by criteria found in Kansas statutes and regulations of the Kansas Board of Regents. Students are responsible for providing information sufficient to support their applications for resident classification. This is a general overview of the procedures and criteria used to determine resident status. It does not replace or supersede the statutes or Regents' regulations which contain the detailed requirements that must be met in order to prove resident status.

•You must have continuous physical residency in Kansas for at least 365 days prior to the first day of classes for which you are applying for residency.

•During those 365 days, your sources of financial support to meet your living expenses must come from Kansas sources. Living expenses include tuition and books if you are student. Sources of income that are from full-time, non-student jobs are more beneficial. Maintaining ties to other states will hinder your residency.

•You must show intent to remain in Kansas indefinitely. There are things that can strengthen your case but won't make you a resident by themselves. They are: Kansas driver's license, voter registration in Kansas, car registration in Kansas, owning a home in Kansas, etc.

•You must prove that you are residing in Kansas for reasons other than educational purposes. If you are a full-time student upon moving to Kansas, this requirement is the hardest to show because we will presume that you are here for educational purposes.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Same as regular admission.

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.
