A bachelor's degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited program, completed application form accompanied by a $75 fee, two official transcripts of all academic work beyond high school, acceptable scores on GRE, three letters of recommendation, and a written Statement of Purpose.

Any applicant whose native language is not English, and/or who has been educated primarily outside of the U.S., should submit official TOEFL, IELTS or MELAB scores. To be considered official, the scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to UNC Charlotte. Scores older than two (2) years will not be accepted. Minimum scores: TOEFL: 83 for the internet-based test or 557 for the paper-based test. IELTS: Overall band score of 6.5. MELAB: 78.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Evidence of satisfactory undergraduate preparation in engineering (preferably in the same field in which they wish to pursue graduate study). Exception may be made with undergraduate degrees in fields other than engineering but removal of deficiencies will be required.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

A bachelor's degree from an accredited university; written application with $75 fee; satisfactory GPA; official copies of all transcripts; official scores on Test of English as a Foreign Language or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS); a TOEFL score of at least 557 (paper-based) or 83 (Internet-based); and a certificate of financial responsibility.

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.
