Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students are admitted to the college based on ACT composite scores, high school coursework, and personal statement.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Requirements:
high school English, 4 yrs.;
mathematics, 3.5 yrs.;
social studies, 2 yrs.;
laboratory science, 2 yrs.;
one foreign language, 2 yrs.;
flexible academics, 2 yrs.;
Total academics, 15.5.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Competition for admission is extremely keen. Applicants must demonstrate high academic achievement and potential, document the availability of sufficient financial resources, and submit evidence of English-language proficiency. ACT score (or equivalent from SAT) is required and used as one factor for admission.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as requirements for resident students.

Residency Requirements

In addition to specific course and scholastic average requirements, each candidate for a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign must earn at least 60 semester hours of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign credit, of which at least 21 hours must be 300- or 400-level courses at a University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus location.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

To enter as a transfer student, you must (1) complete 30 semester hours at an accredited institution, (2) complete basic college mathematics (through calculus), chemistry (one year), a general physics sequence (one or one and a half years), and the English composition (rhetoric) requirement, and (3) meet a minimum grade-point requirement of at least 3.0 (4.0=A). Competitive standards for admission are usually higher than 3.0. Overall and technical grade-point averages must be at or above the minimum cutoffs.

The dramatically increased complexity of engineered products, services and business systems, large number of actors and agents, and vast number of interfaces challenge engineers to master multiple disciplines and perspectives, ranging across design, operations, finance, and decision making, from the qualitative to the quantitative. The department is committed to developing and integrating the knowledge and tools essential to create an engineering discipline of complex systems. This discipline borrows heavily from traditional engineering knowledge in industrial engineering, systems engineering, operations research, and computation; it couples these with insights drawn from economic, policy, business, social and sciences, and employs mathematical and computational tools. Areas of study and research include computer-aided design, computer graphics, optimization, equilibria, network design, simulation, manufacturing systems, product design, environmentally conscious design, real-time decision making, systems design, nondestructive evaluation, reliability, robotics, control systems, entrepreneurial engineering, biomechanics/rehabilitation engineering, decision and game theory, operations research, human factors, logistics, applied probability, analytics, and statistics.

The department offers MS and PhD degrees in Industrial Engineering (IE degree) and in Systems and Entrepreneurial Engineering (SEE degree) and an MS degree in Financial Engineering (FE degree). Research is conducted in several specialized laboratories.

The field of optimization and equilibria develops the theories and methodologies of these two topics and applies the results to significant engineering and economic problems of fundamental and emerging importance. Theories include duality for nonconvex optimization, nonsmooth and variational analysis, differential variational and complementarity systems, and generalized Nash equilibria, to name a few; computational methods are developed for these problems. Financial Engineering (FE) is a relatively young, multidisciplinary field that pertains to the application of engineering approaches and methods to the analysis and management of financial problems, particularly in the financial asset arena. Common problems involve identifying and managing financial risk in asset portfolios or asset positions. Other applications exist in proprietary security trading operations. Research methods include stochastic modeling, numerical algorithms, optimization, and Monte Carlo simulation.
The Decision Systems Laboratory research addresses the problem of tradeoffs under uncertainty during the design of engineering systems. Examples of systems include the product design and manufacturing system, a portfolio for product take-back and remanufacturing system, and an energy generation and supply system. Tradeoffs include attributes such as cost, environmental impact, quality, and reliability. A normative approach is taken; what design decisions best reflect the decision maker's true preferences? External funding for this research comes from a variety of sources, including the National Science Foundation, industry, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
The Enterprise Systems Optimizations Laboratory identifies and studies the fundamentals of the product development and product planning. Approaches are built on analytical methodologies based on the foundations of optimization theories and mathematical programming. Typical applications involve large-scale systems, such as automotive vehicles, aerospace systems, and enterprise-wide product planning that constitute system-of-systems.
Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary area that is a synergistic combination of concepts and principles from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, decision and control. The main objective is to design intelligent systems that make sensible decisions in response to their environments. Mechatronic systems are used in automotive systems, aerospace systems, consumer electronics, and robotics. The Mechatronics Laboratory supports project-based education in mechatronics and real-time embedded systems. It uses small mobile robots to teach control algorithms; DSP programming; motor control; image processing; Kalman filtering; software/hardware integration and mechatronic techniques. Students design and build grippers for their robots, add and control servomotors, and design custom software to help their robots complete real world tasks. The lab has a large collection of sensors and actuators along with a Vicon Motion tracking system that can be used to design complex mechatronic systems.
The Engineering System Design Laboratory (ESDL) investigates rigorous quantitative methods for engineering systems design with the objective of delivering new technical capabilities, deepening design knowledge, and understanding interfaces in design. Our work involves optimization, multidisciplinary physics-based models, and physical experimentation. ESDL thrust areas are 1) integrated physical and control system design and 2) generative design for topology and system architecture. Applications include robotics, space-based observatories, renewable energy, automotive systems, power electronics, and material and structural design. The ESDL has facilities for simulating (64-thread Linux cluster), prototyping (machining and additive manufacturing), and testing mechatronic systems.

The Monolithic Systems Lab (MSL) conducts research in the design and manufacturing of engineering artifacts that are made one-piece or monolithic. Typical examples of monolithic systems are compliant mechanisms, that perform useful work due to elastic deformation and soft robots that inflate like balloons to move. We work on several applications such as robotics, medical devices, flexure systems, prosthetics, and orthotics. MSL houses a novel polymer workstations, 3-D printers, CNC mills for manufacturing and a testbed to validate novel pneumatic actuators for manufacturing automation, assistive robots, rehabilitation and space applications.

The Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation Research Laboratory provides acoustic emission, ultrasonics, acousto-ultrasonics, eddy-current, magnetic particle, holography, and real-time microfocus x-ray equipment for nondestructive evaluation and characterization of a variety of materials and structures. The Laboratory continues to support projects regarding aging infrastructure and construction, manufacturing and manufacturing process control, inspection of manufactured assemblies, structural health monitoring, materials characterization, etc.

The Product Design Laboratory supports research leading to improved understanding, education, and management of complex product development systems. The research covers three realms in PD systems: system design and management, information-driven process management, and information technology support tools and methodologies.

The Operations Research Laboratory consists of 20 high-end PCs, 10 Linux-based workstations, and an 8-CPU server. In addition, there is a projection facility to allow for audio-visual instruction of undergraduate and graduate-level courses in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research.

The Virtual Reality Laboratory focuses on fundamental and applied research in virtual reality and robotics for medical applications. Research in virtual reality includes surgical simulations as well as development of virtual training environments and curriculums. The training environments are immersive and interactive. The trainee can move within the environment and also interact with virtual human models with the help of state-of-the-art visualization and imaging systems. Medical robotics include research in novel assistive and surgeon-augmented robotic systems. Such devices reduce the stress of a surgeon and prevents traumatic incidents by sensing the dynamics of the surgical tools. In addition to this, these devices can scale the forces from the surgeon for precision cutting of soft or hard tissues. The lab consists of virtual reality hardware, haptic devices, brain computer interface systems, several difference robotic interfaces and range of software and programming environments.

The Flexible Manufacturing and Manufacturing and Project Laboratory Flexible manufacturing lab is designed to introduce engineering undergraduate students to the fundamental concepts of industrial automation and flexible manufacturing. The lab has 6 stations for training and experimenting in programmable logic controllers (PLCs), two 5-degrees of freedom articulated robots, one table-top computer numerical controlled (CNC) milling machine and a flexible manufacturing cell.

Materials Science and Engineering

Progress in materials science and engineering enables advances in key technologies that impact the social and economic development of our nation. Materials usage is constantly changing as new materials and systems replace those that shaped our world. These changes generally improve manufacturability and performance by allowing for radical changes in design. The impact covers all areas, including energy production, delivery and usage, transportation, water purification, communication technologies, electronics, sports, and medicine, to name a few. The future will see the development of new materials with properties tailored to specific applications, and a reduction in time from development to application as computer simulation and modeling continues to impact processing and performance evaluation strategies.

Critical to the successful development and application of these new materials is the ability to correlate the properties of each material with its structure and determine how to use this knowledge to design, synthesize, process, and apply the materials in a cost effective manner. Structure, properties, processing, and application are the basis of the research programs in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois. The nature of materials science and engineering research requires an interdisciplinary approach, and research activities in the department are pursued in collaboration with groups in electrical, mechanical, civil, environmental, and chemical engineering, as well as physics, chemistry, and veterinary medicine.

Physics

Stillman Robinson, the first dean of engineering at Illinois, believed that a deep understanding of physics was fundamental to the education of every engineer. Today’s physicists study problems ranging from the structure and evolution of the universe to the structure and function of the molecules that regulate DNA. They unravel the interactions of matter and energy that control how stars form, how electrons flow through superconductors, how earthquakes and avalanches propagate, and how prices fluctuate in the financial markets. They bring the tools of mathematics and computation to unlock the mechanisms of complex systems, and they design instruments to measure physical properties on scales as large as the universe and as small as the particles that make up atoms.

The Department of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, consistently ranked among the top ten physics graduate programs in the nation and currently #2 in undergraduate engineering physics, is known worldwide for excellence and innovation. We are committed to training new generations of researchers and teachers, to forging new partnerships with government and industry, and to applying the tools of physics to seek opportunities for creativity and discovery and to address problems that challenge our society. Device applications based on transistors, semiconductors, and superconductors, advances in magnetic resonance imaging, the development of computers and supercomputers, the application of radar, and the growth of the Internet have all arisen directly from fundamental research in physics at Illinois.

Major experimental and theoretical programs in the Department of Physics range from fundamental to applied science and are currently supported by external funding at a level of more than $28 million annually. In addition to our department's preeminence in traditional physics disciplines, such as condensed matter physics, nuclear and particle physics, and astrophysics, we are increasingly recognized for our strong programs in biological physics, computational physics, and the physics of quantum information. Physics research reaches out via interdisciplinary collaborations with other science and engineering departments at the University of Illinois--many also ranked within the top ten U.S. programs in their disciplines. An important focus is physics education research; we are creating and implementing innovative teaching techniques in science and engineering curricula and are recognized nationally for our introductory physics courseware.

The cyber security of energy delivery systems, such as power grids and oil and gas (O&G) refinery and pipeline operations, has been the subject of media attention and been addressed in legislation, standards, and executive actions. However, there is growing awareness that we must also explicitly ensure cyber resiliency in order for an EDS to maintain critical functions in the presence of disruptive events, in particular those arising from attacks on the cyber infrastructure.

We are addressing project objectives through research and outreach activities at the partner institutions, working in close collaboration with industry (utilities, O&G asset owners, and equipment vendors). The CREDC model explicitly creates a pipeline that generates research results and takes them through to evaluation and deployment of prototypes in industrial settings, with a handoff to the sectors through licensing, startups, and open-source mechanisms. CREDC is impacting foundational science and engineering approaches to EDS cyber security and resiliency, will impact practice through provisioning of industry-vetted solutions to near-term and far-term problems, and will impact the practice of education and workforce training in EDS cyber security and resiliency.

An overarching theme of CREDC is security and resiliency mechanisms that operate non-intrusively without negatively impacting EDS operation, and are viable from the point of view of legal constraints, cost effectiveness, maximal impact, and industrial acceptance.

TEC faculty members have produced an impressive body of collaborative research and publications in both theoretical and applied disciplines. www.tec.uiuc.edu

The Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems

Research in the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (Nano-CEMMS) addresses a central problem in the development of nanotechnology: how to assemble structures at sizes smaller than can be seen (or transduced) and manipulated (or transcribed). Making three-dimensional, nanoscale devices and systems from millions to trillions of different types of molecules is incredibly difficult. The Center's goal is to develop a reliable, robust and cost-effective nanomanufacturing system to make nanostructures from multiple materials. This technology will allow advancements and discoveries in nanoscience to move from the laboratory to production.

The Nano-CEMMS Center is a partnership of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Stanford University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technological State University, University of California - Irvine, University of Notre Dame, and Northwestern University. Each partner offers unique facilities, eminent scholars and financial resources to support the Center's research.

One of the Center's core missions is to develop a diverse U.S. workforce of educators, scientists, engineers, and practitioners to advance nanomanufacturing technology in the U.S. and beyond. Nano-CEMMS provides a wide range of human resource development activities targeted toward increasing both the diversity of students involved with the Center and educational opportunities at the K-12 and undergraduate levels, as well as providing graduate students with teaching experience in an emerging field. In addition, both undergraduate and graduate students have opportunities to participate in the Center's work through research assistantships and independent study projects.

Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid

The TCIPG (Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid) Center was created in 2005 to address the challenge of how to protect the nation's power grid. It began with a five-year, $7.5 million National Science Foundation Cyber Trust center-scale award, and in 2009 won a new five-year award of $18.8 million from the U.S. Department of Energy with support from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. TCIPG research is led by the University of Illinois ITI team and also involves researchers at Cornell University, Dartmouth College, the University of California at Davis, and Washington State University. The center’s work will significantly improve the way the power grid cyber infrastructure is built, making it more secure, reliable, and safe. TCIPG is working to provide the fundamental science and technology needed to create an intelligent, adaptive power grid that can survive malicious adversaries, provide continuous delivery of power, and support dynamically varying trust requirements. We will do so by creating the necessary cyber building blocks and architecture, and by creating validation technology to quantify the amount of trust provided by the proposed approach.tcipg.org
