Other Student Support Programs

In addition to the traditional orientation programs for incoming students, the School of Engineering provides a semester-long workshop sequence for first year students covering topics such as academic policies, engineering disciplines, campus support, career planning, professionalism and leadership development. The School administers an extensive tutoring and counseling program for all engineering students in both individual and group format. In addition, the School also teaches a course titled "Methods of Inquiry" which helps students develop academic strategies that they might not have been exposed to in high school. The School administers a number of pre-college programs for both incoming first year students and students from middle school to high school which focus on hands-on learning, academic preparation and career awareness.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

As one of the nation’s leading engineering schools, Rutgers’ School of Engineering prepares a richly diversified body of 3,860 undergraduates and more than 1,070 graduate students with the ability to solve problems, create opportunities, make meaningful societal advances and lead through innovation. Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is a large public AAU University and recent member of the Big Ten. Rutgers School of Engineering students may earn minors, second majors, or second bachelor's degrees in the arts & sciences. There are also five year dual-degree programs, leading to an MBA or master of science degree in addition to the bachelor's degree. Rutgers School of Engineering students may also study abroad in a variety of countries in programs that are administered by the Rutgers Study Abroad Program. There is also an optional cooperative education program for degree credit available to juniors and seniors. With the newly established Aerospace Engineering degree program, students can choose from 10 undergraduate, 10 master's, and 7 doctoral degree programs; interdisciplinary degree programs, combined BS/MS, BS/ME, BS/MBA degrees, and minors and second majors from outside of the school of Engineering are also available. The depth and breadth of other colleges at Rutgers afford engineering students abundant opportunities for multidisciplinary education and research experiences. Our broad spectrum of academic programs is complemented by a unique mix of early hands-on educational and research experiences, vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem both at Rutgers and along the northeast corridor, extra-curricular activities such as the Engineers Without Borders, Rutgers Formula Racing, and the National Concrete Canoe Competition, and leadership opportunities offered by more than 30 student chapters of professional and honor societies. With nationally recognized research centers in areas such as advanced manufacturing, energy storage, wireless networking technologies, and ceramic and particulate science, Rutgers School of Engineering is home to one of five national university transportation centers, and designated as one of six FAA test sites for the integration of unmanned aerial systems into the national airspace. The School of Engineering is engaging students in an engineering experience that will prepare them for the global workplace in the 21st century.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students are admitted directly to the School of Engineering. First year courses are common to all majors and students select the major at end of first year. All majors are available to each student. First year students submit applications to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. First year students who submit an application and required credentials by a priority date of December 1st will receive notification of a decision by Feb 28th. The priority date for transfer applicants is January 15th for fall admission (May 15th notification date). First year and transfer students are normally not admitted for the spring semester. Students who do not submit the application and required credentials by the priority date will be considered on a space available basis.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

There are no specific departmental admissions requirements. Students admitted to the College are free to choose any engineering major.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Academic admissions requirements are the same for foreign students and United States citizens and permanent residents. However, foreign students must submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and all documents required for issuance of an I-20, Certificate of Eligibility For Non-Immigrant Status, before a decision is made. A minimum TOEFL score of 550 is required for the paper-based test, 213 for the computer-based test, and 79 for the internet-based test.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

There are no special admissions requirements for non-resident students.

Residency Requirements

Transfer students must complete at least 30 credits at Rutgers University including at least 24 credits of School of Engineering courses.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Normally, transfer students are expected to have completed one year of chemistry, calculus, and physics at their previous institution with a cumulative GPA of approximately 3.0 or higher. Exceptions are applicants who are in their first year after high school, and who would have clearly been admissible based on criteria for first year students.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A BA/BS program is offered in cooperation with the School of Arts & Sciences. A BS/BS program (in Bioenvironmental Engineering only) is offered in cooperation with The School of Environmental & Biological Sciences. Students may apply to the Rutgers Business School for admission to the BS/MBA program. Admission requires a 3.2 cumulative GPA by the end of the junior year and score in the 80th percentile (~ 640 overall score) on the GMAT exam. These should be viewed as strict lower limits.

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.
