Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering, mathematics, or physical science will be considered for graduate admission. Consultation with the graduate program director is highly recommended early in the process of applying for graduate admission. This could point out any deficiencies in the candidate’s background and appropriate undergraduate courses could be taken to make up these deficiencies. General admission requirements for graduate students: application form, application fee, three recommendations, evidence of scholastic work to do graduate-level work, General Test of the Graduate Record Examination, statement of academic or professional goals.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission is through the School of Engineering (not by an individual department)

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

The Test of English as a Foreign Language is required for applicants whose native language is not English.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The Test of English as a Foreign Language is required for applicants whose native language is not English.

Residency Requirements

None

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Same as regular admissions.

With the approval of the dean of the Graduate School, a maximum of nine semester hours may be transferred to a master’s degree program from an accredited institution if they are acceptable for graduate degree credit in the source institution.

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.
