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.

Degree Requirements

Bachelor's Degree Requirements

Completion of 125 degree hours at LTU or Transfer from another institution and complete the last 2 semesters of coursework ( minimum of 30 hours at LTU, a minimum of 14 hours of this work being in the student's major). Attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00.

Master's Degree Requirements

Students applying for admission to the MSET program should meet the following criteria:

Hold a BS in engineering or engineering technology from an accredited college or university. Students with science and similar degrees are considered if they have a minimum of three years’ experience in an engineering environment. Applicants might be required to take some undergraduate courses if they do not have the required foundations

Provide official transcripts of all completed college work.

Have earned an overall GPA of at least 3.00 on a 4.00 scale. (Students with lower GPA's may be accepted on a provisional basis, as described below.)

Submit a graduate Application Form

Submit three letters of recommendation, including one from a faculty in the students' undergraduate program, and if applicable two from corporate supervisors.


Applicant for the MSET should have math and science course work that is no less than what is equivalent to BSET curriculum at LTU.

Students with lower than a 3.00 GPA, may be admitted on a provisional basis. They will be evaluated for official graduate student status upon completion of six (6) semester hours of graduate coursework at LTU. This evaluation will be conducted by the program director, and a graduate committee made up of at least three full time departmental faculty. Each student will be notified of his/her status within two weeks of completion of the minimum required hours.

Students may apply to the MSET program at any time of the year, for matriculation during any future semester. For students transferring from other graduate programs into LTU's MSET degree program, the following guidelines will be implemented:

No more than six (6) graduate semester credit hours may be transferred, and these must be from an accredited institution. The director and the graduate committee will evaluate exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis.

Credit for courses taken in a graduate program other than those listed in criterion (1) above will be reviewed by the program director and the graduate committee for their acceptability as a substitute within LTU's program.

A request for courses to be considered must be made in writing at the time of application.

A minimum grade of 3.00 must have been achieved in the transfer courses.

Courses must be completed within five years after the program is started.
In order to continue in the MSET program, students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 after their formal admission to the BSET program may be placed on academic probation and must consult with the program director regarding continuation in the program.

After formal admission to the MSET program, students must complete a written plan of study, which will be approved by the program director, and kept on file for updating purposes in the ET department. The plan of study must be submitted no later than the second semester after the student has enrolled in the MSET program.



Requirements for Completion of Degree

Candidates for the MSET degree must complete 30 semester hours within the MSET curriculum as defined elsewhere in this proposal. Six (6) of these hours may be approved transfer courses. They must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on all courses to be applied toward the degree.

In the semester prior to their anticipated graduation, candidates for the MSET degree will meet with Dr. Sabah Abro, the program director to ensure that they have met all program requirements and to complete the petition for graduation. The program director will then review the petition and give final approval for graduation.
