Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Undergraduate students who meet eligibility requirements for the University will be admitted to the College of Engineering and Science.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Same as for all freshmen.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All applicants whose first language is not English must take the Test of English as a Second Language (TOEFL) and score higher than 525 (70 on the Internet-based test) in order to be admitted. Applicants must submit academic records from their country that are at least equivalent to the admission requirements for American students. Students who take the TOEFL are not required to take the ACT (except for architecture applicants), but it is strongly advised for placement purposes. Students from English speaking countries must take the ACT. All students must provide proof of financial support in accordance with Immigration regulations. All other Department of Homeland Security requirements must be met for admission. All admitted students must have sufficient knowledge of the English language to benefit from a program of study.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students.

Residency Requirements

If he/she is a transfer student, not less than 36 weeks residence at Louisiana Tech is required, during which at least 25% of the semester hours required for the curricula are earned with a minimum 2.0 GPA.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Candidates for admission to the College of Engineering and Science who have studied at another institution of higher education must submit an official record of that study to Louisiana Tech University. This record will be evaluated by the program in which the candidate wishes to major. The evaluation will determine which curricular requirements of the intended program of study at Louisiana Tech have been satisfied by the student's prior study. Students must have an overall grade point average of at least 2.0 out of 4.0 in all courses for which transfer credit is allowed.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Students at Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University have the opportunity of simultaneously pursuing two Bachelor of Science degree programs, one at Tech and one at Grambling. Grambling's B.S. degree in Drafting Technology is coordinated with Tech's B.S. degree in Civil Engineering. Grambling's B.S. degree in Electronics Technology is coordinated with Tech's B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering.
A student who wishes to enroll for either of these dual programs may do so by declaring his/her intention when applying for admission. Transfer students are allowed to enter these programs at any registration at either of the universities.
To Qualify for a B.S. degree at Grambling and a B.S. degree at Tech, a student must complete all courses required by the Department of Industrial Education at Grambling and the courses required by the appropriate engineering department at Tech. Courses that are common to both degree programs and that are offered at both universities may be taken at either university.

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.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

There will be a project for seniors in CET and one for seniors in EET. The EET project is a fabrication project which requires the student to build and debug a relatively complex electronic system or industrial control system. The CET project student teams take the role of the prime contractor and are given a set of plans and specifications for a small actual project that has already been completed, such as a small bridge replacement, or a modest commercial building. The students are required to identify the steps or operations necessary to build the project, estimate their duration, arrange them in an effective sequence, determine which are to be subcontracted, plan the sequence for ordering and delivery of materials, estimate the cost (including appropriate overhead) for each activity and predict the cash flow for the project. The project is not sponsored, but local chapters of AGC and local firms donate the plans, etc.

Admissions/Transfers

Admission to Engineering Technology College

Undergraduate freshmen are required to enroll initially in the Division of Admissions, Orientation, Basic and Career Studies. They will be admitted to the College of Engineering when they have demonstrated the scholastic achievement required for success in their intended major. This scholastic achievement consists of the following requirements: 1) The student must be in good academic standing in the Division of Admissions, Orientation, Basic and Career Studies, and 2) The student is required to attain at least a 2.2 GPA based on hours attempted in the Freshman Curriculum of the intended major for admission to the College of Engineering. Some departments require a grade of "C" or better if the course is a prerequisite for other courses in the curriculum.

Admission to an Engineering Technology Department

Same as for all freshmen.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All students must have sufficient knowledge of the English language to benefit from a program of study. All undergraduates whose first language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Applicants who score 500 or more, and who meet all other admission qualifications, may proceed with an academic program. All students must provide proof of financial support in accordance with immigration regulations. All other Immigration and Naturalization Service requirements must be met for admission. Applications must be completed two months prior to each quarter.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for residents.

Residency Requirements

No less than 36 weeks residence at Louisiana Tech is required, during which at least 30 semester hours and 60 quality points are earned. A student must spend the senior year in residence. Exception: A student who has fulfilled the minimum residence requirements may be permitted to earn nine of the last 36 semester hours out of residence.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities are required. Transfer students will not be admitted to the University if they are under scholastic or disciplinary suspension from another college. No transfer student will be admitted to the University unless their academic record meets the standards required of a student.

Candidates for admission to the College of Engineering and Science who have studied at another institution of higher education must submit an official record of that study to Louisiana Tech University. This record will be evaluated by the program in which the candidate wishes to major. The evaluation will determine which curricular requirements of the intended program of study at Louisiana Tech have been satisfied by the student's prior study. Students must have an overall GPA of at least 2.25 of 4.0 in all courses for which transfer credit is allowed. If a student has less than 24 hours of credit the same requirements for freshmen students apply. If more than 24 hours, students must have completed a college-level English and mathematics course.
