Any engineering degree earned in the United States must be from an ABET accredited program. Students should possess a strong academic record, demonstrated by a 3.0 CGPA or better. Applicants may be admitted conditionally with the provision that they complete specific undergraduate courses prior to enrolling in graduate courses.

Master of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering: Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree in an ABET accredited engineering program (or international equivalent) or closely related engineering discipline; have superior academic records with a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.0; complete the Graduate Record Examination (GRE); submit a complete application package before the deadline specified in the University catalog. At the time of initial offering, there is no particular threshold set for GRE score in order to be admitted; instead, that information will inform admissions decisions, as well as help to determine the level of support for both teaching and research graduate assistantships.

Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering: Applicants must have completed a Masters or Bachelor degree in aerospace engineering or closely related engineering discipline; have superior academic records with a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.5; have taken the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and have an acceptable score on both quantitative and verbal sections; submit a complete application package before the deadline specified in the University catalog. International applicants whose primary language is not English must also achieve the minimum score requirement of TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Test System) as required by the University. The minimum acceptable scores are 79 TOEFL or 6.0 IELTS.

Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science: Minimum requirements for admission to the program are: Have completed a BS or higher degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, Systems Engineering, or a closely related field from an ABET accredited program or international equivalent. Have excellent academic credentials with a minimum CGPA of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale. Have taken the GRE within 5 years of application, with scores having been reported to the university. Have demonstrated an aptitude for high-level research through submission of resumes, publications, portfolios, and/or through on-site or electronically-mediated interviews. Have submitted a written statement outlining their research interests and personal goals. Have submitted 3 letters of recommendation attesting to their aptitude, character, and work ethic.
Have submitted a completed application packet to Graduate Admissions by the appropriate deadline. Have met university requirements for demonstration of English proficiency (international students whose native language is not English). Achievement of the minimum requirements alone will not guarantee admission. The committee will admit only students deemed to have a high probability of successfully completing the Ph.D.

Ph.D. in Engineering Physics: The minimum entry requirement to
the program is a Bachelor's or Master's degree in physics, engineering,
or a suitably related field. A minimum CGPA of 3.2/4.0 is required. The program also requires submission of General GRE (verbal plus quantitative) scores obtained within the previous two years of the application. Applicants are required to submit statements of goals (2 to 5 pages) and reasons for wishing to pursue doctoral studies, incorporating interests and background, and 3 letters of recommendation. All applicants whose native language is not English, and who were educated at schools where English was not the language of instruction in all disciplines, must have their official TOEFL scores sent directly from the testing authority. Students entering the doctoral degree program with a bachelor’s degree must follow the master of science degree requirements for 30 semester credit hours. Students must also complete an additional 45 semester credit hours to satisfy the doctoral program requirements.

Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering: Admission to the Ph.D. program will be administered through the Mechanical Engineering department. Applications will be reviewed and evaluated by a departmental Ph.D. committee chaired by the Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. Program Coordinator. Applicants to the program must have completed a B.S. or higher degree in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field from an accredited institution; have a minimum CGPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale; have taken the GRE within 5 years of application and reported the scores to the university; demonstrate an aptitude for high-level research through submission of resumes, publications, portfolios, and/or through on-site or phone interviews; submit a written statement outlining the student’s research interests and personal goals; submit 3 letters of recommendation attesting to the student’s aptitude, character, and work ethic; submit a completed application packet to Graduate Admissions by the appropriate deadline. International students must meet university requirements for demonstration of English proficiency and verification of academic records. Admission to the Ph.D. program is highly selective: meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. It is expected that successful candidates will significantly exceed the minimum requirements in all areas and will be able to perform research in areas of interest to Mechanical Engineering faculty. Preference may be given to students holding MS degrees.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Foreign Credential Evaluation, Copy of Passport, Affidavit of Financial Support.
Language Requirement - International students who will not be graduating from an English educational system within the last two years, or for whom English is not the primary language, must submit official TOEFL, IELTS, or Cambridge scores. The preferred TOEFL score for admissions is 213 (computer based), 550 (paper based), or 79 (IBT-Internet based). The preferred IELTS score for admission is 6.0. The preferred Cambridge score is 170.

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.
