College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering has three important Missions: education, research innovation, and entrepreneurship. The College seeks to serve the region, state and nation as a part of a urban, comprehensive research university. Students are prepared for professional practice, graduate study, lifelong learning, and to lead society. Faculty members develop the scientific and technological base for the engineering profession and disseminate advanced technical knowledge to engineers, other professionals, and the public. A balance among the three missions is sought through a partnership built among students, faculty, staff, alumni, government, and private industry. This can be achieved by maintaining an academic environment that is both intellectually stimulating and supportive of all of its constituents regardless of race, gender, or ethnic background.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to these programs is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. Applicants to the engineering master’s degree programs must also satisfy the following criteria.
In addition to the minimum requirement for admission of an overall grade point average of 2.8 from an institution accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), a mini­mum grade point average of 2.8 in all junior and senior year (upper division) courses is required. Applicants from abroad will be judged on the basis of their academic record and on the credentials of the school from which they graduated. Individual departments and inter­disciplinary programs may require a higher minimum upper division or cumulative g.p.a.; please refer to the departmental sections of the Graduate Bulletin. Regular admission may also be granted to appli­cants with undergraduate degrees from regionally (non-ABET) accredited institutions in engineering, physics, chemistry, mathemat­ics and computer science who meet the equivalent of the above min­imum standards. Additional course work will generally be required of such applicants.
Admission to the doctoral programs of the College is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School; for requirements, see Admission, Graduate School. For admission into a Ph.D. engineering program, the student’s overall grade point average must be 3.2 or better, with a 3.5 in the last two years as an undergraduate student if being admitted directly from a bachelor’s program. Students who do not satisfy these minimum standards will not be considered for admission to the program until they have completed a master’s degree and have earned a grade point average in courses taken for graduate credit that is not less than 3.5. Individual departments may have higher admission requirements.

Generally, students applying for admission to the Ph.D. program should have first achieved an M.S. degree. Students completing their M.S. degree programs who wish to enter the Ph.D. program must have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 at the graduate level.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Requirements vary by department.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All applicants whose native language is not English and/or the applicant earned a bachelor's degree or higher from an institution outside of the U.S. are required to establish English proficiency, some countries are exempt from this requirement. Applicants who do not meet this criteria are required to submit an official qualifying score from either TOEFL (79 internet-based and 550 paper-based), MELAB (85), or IELTS (6.5) to establish English proficiency. The score must be officially reported by ETS TOEFL, cannot be institutional, cannot be provided by another university, and must be no more than two years old. Please report your TOEFL score to Wayne State University using institution code 1898.

Please go to http://gradschool.wayne.edu/future/admission-requirements.php#International%20English%20Proficiency%20Requirements for more information.

Residency Requirements

24 credits must be earned at WSU for MS, 60 credits must be earned at WSU for PhD.

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.
