Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission coincides with admission to the institution. School changes allow students to enter Engineering after matriculating in another school/college within the University. Students may select a major upon application, University admission is not based on major selection. Students may change majors at any time prior to graduation. Application deadlines: for Freshmen, January 15 for the fall semester, October 1 for the spring semester; for Transfers, April 1 for the fall semester, October 1 for the spring semester; for International applicants, February 1 for the fall semester and October 1 for the spring semester. There is a $70 application fee. Typically, admitted students rank in the top 20% of their high school class and have combined critical reading and math SAT scores of 1200 minimum.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students may be admitted to a major upon initial admission to the University. Students may request a major change within the School of Engineering two times per year; January and June. Student should request a major change prior to the fourth semester.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

The University of Connecticut provides educational opportunities of the highest quality to all students. It makes a contribution to international education by encouraging the enrollment of students from all parts of the world. It selects, however, only those applicants who are academically, linguistically, and financially prepared for University work in this country.
International students requesting admission information receive an application and detailed instructions about required supporting materials. Requirements are: official academic transcripts, personal essay, financial affidavit, TOEFL with minimum 550 on the paper test, 213 on the electronic test or 81 on the IBT, and SAT or ACT scores. Prospective international students should begin the application procedures one year before intended matriculation. International students who are interested in transferring from another institution can only apply for the fall semester. Prospective students may submit correspondence to University of Connecticut, Undergraduate Admissions Office, 3121 Hillside Road Unit 3088, Storrs, CT 06269-3088.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same requirements as a resident student.

Residency Requirements

A minimum of thirty (30) credits must be completed at the University.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Internal transfer student applicants to the School should have at least a 2.7/4.0 GPA. When transfering from another institution admission to the School of Engineering normally requires a GPA of 3.0 or above. As a member of College of Technology Pathway Program, all students completing their associate's degree in Engineering Science, at one of the twelve Connecticut Community-Technical Colleges with at least a 3.0 are guaranteed admission to the School of Engineering.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 39
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 33

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A student is counted as a “dual degree” recipient when they complete an additional degree in a program in a School or College of the University in addition to their Engineering degree. To earn a dual degree, each degree requires the student to earn at least 30 degree credits more than the degree with the higher minimum degree requirement. At least 30 of the additional credits must be 2000 level or higher courses in the major of the additional degree sought. The School of Engineering also offers a double major option (Single BSE/BS degree) and the option to graduate with a minor in addition to the Engineering degree.

Twenty-three graduating seniors received a dual degree. Nine graduated with double Engineering majors. Sixty-eight seniors graduated with an engineering minor in addition to their Engineering degree.

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.
