Other Student Support Programs

WVU provides robust academic support and career exploration opportunities throughout the first year experience. At New Student Orientation, which incoming freshmen attend before enrolling in their first semester at WVU, students take a “Quantitative Reasoning Assessment” to determine their appropriate initial math and chemistry course placement. Upon completion of specific core courses (calculus, chemistry, english, and engineering), students may enter the engineering discipline major of their choice. Every student has an academic advisor. Throughout the freshman year, students find academic support through the “one-stop shop” Engineering Learning Center (ELC). The ELC is the “hub” of all freshman engineering activities and provides (1) tutoring in math, chemistry, physics, and engineering course work, (2) drop-in advising, and (3) mentoring support. Additional tutoring is available to students through a variety of WVU Learning Centers, some which are subject-focused (like math and chemistry) and some which are location-based in residence halls. Students are required to study in the ELC or one of these environments each week. In addition to providing tutoring, the ELC hosts weekly subject review sessions for math, chemistry, and MATLAB, as well as a variety of co-curricular experiences, such as presentations by engineering-related guests, student success seminars, and engineering site visits. These “Out of Class Experiences” are designed to engage students in activities and experiences that promote their academic, social, and professional development. Students are introduced to and encouraged to join student chapters of engineering organizations through an annual “EngineerFEST” organization fair. They also attend department seminars and College-sponsored lectures as well as occasional engineering site visits which introduce them to the various fields of engineering. Students who wish to combine real-world experience with their classroom education can do so by participating in internships and the College Cooperative Education Program. The College offers international exchange programs with universities in England, Denmark, Morocco, Mexico, Turkey, India, Italy and others

The senior design projects offer a wide range of opportunities to students in their senior year, culminating with showcasing their finished products at design fairs, competing in regional, national and international competitions, or presenting a project report to industrial clients. Students have designed, built and competed in national and international competitions such as the DOE sponsored Solar Decathlon, where students traveled to California to build a solar-powered smart house. Students have also built or participated in an all-electric Formula Lightning race car, Chemical Reaction Powered (ChE) Chem-E-Car, SAE Mini-Baja All-Terrain Vehicle, ASME Human Powered Vehicle, SAE Hybrid Electric Vehicle, EcoCAR 3: Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition, AIAA Design-Build-Fly electric model aircraft, NASA Balloon Launched Satellite, NASA Microgravity, NASA Lunabotics Competition, Mars Rover Team, Projects with Industry, Mexico International Design Experience, Concrete Canoe, Steel Bridge, and ACM Programming Competition. Teams of students also complete engineering projects for regional industrial companies. Other senior projects include the design of a biometrics-based office management system, a robot built for mine search and rescue, a video game developed for a local pre-school, a sensor system for remote monitoring of environmental conditions in a local stream, and an interactive museum exhibit honoring war veterans. Chemical engineering seniors are designing a process to produce chemical intermediates from ethylene, which is produced by cracking the ethane found in the Macellus shale deposits in West Virginia. Another group of chemical engineering seniors is designing a process to manufacture a biochemical product. Industrial engineering seniors evaluate and solve current industrial problems such as the redesign of a production line to improve productivity and quality while reducing costs. For their senior design projects, industrial engineering students are assigned to work 8 hours per week in industry or government, under the mentorship of a professional industrial engineer. Each senior works on a real-world problem, developing and presenting final recommendation for its solution to management.

Freshman students wanting to pursue a degree in engineering who are not calculus eligible can be admitted into the College as general engineering or pre-engineerings students based on high school GPA, and ACT/SAT math and composite/total scores. These students are admitted based on a high school GPA (unweighted scale) of 2.5 and ACT Math of 25 and Composite of 22 or SAT Math 570 and SAT Total (math & verbal) of 1030. Pre-engineering are admitted based on a high school GPA (unweighted scale) of 2.5 and ACT Math of 18 and Composite of 21 or SAT Math 480 and SAT Total (math & verbal) of 990. These students are not eligible to take the freshman engineering design class until their mathematics courses are successfully completed and they qualify for calculus.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Freshmen students are transferred from the freshman engineering program into a discipline major after they complete 4 credit hours of Calculus I with a grade of "C" or better, 4 credit hours of inorganic chemistry with laboratory, 1 credit hour of freshman orientation, 5 credit hours of freshman engineering course work, 3 credit hours of English with a GPA of 2.25 and have an overall GPA that is at least 2.0. Engineering students not meeting requirements to transfer to a discipline major by the end of their 3rd semester in the college are transferred out of the college into University General Studies. General Engineering students are permitted 4 semesters to complete the requirements for admission to a major.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students who wish to enter a graduate program must submit a completed application and transcripts of all college work completed and must have a 3.0 GPA on all courses accepted for graduate credit. To be eligible to the Ph.D. program, a candidate should have a Bachelor or Master degree in engineering from either an accredited program in engineering or a recognized international program in engineering. Candidates who hold a B.S. or M.S. degree in computer science, the physical sciences, or mathematics will be considered for admission.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

To be eligible for admission to a designated M.S. degree program, a candidate must hold or expect to receive a corresponding designated Bachelor's degree in the same or allied field from either an ABET accredited program in engineering, or an internationally recognized program in engineering. Non-calculus based degrees are not sufficient qualifications for admission to any of the graduate programs offered by the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources with the exception of the Computer Science, Industrial Hygiene, Safety Management, and Software Engineering programs. Students wishing to pursue a Master of Science Degree who do not hold a correspondingly named Bachelor degree may be admitted into either a discipline-designated program (including the M.S. degrees in Computer Science, Occupational Hygiene, Safety Management, and Software Engineering) or the undesignated Master of Science in Engineering degree program, depending on their credentials. Such students will normally be required to obtain a baccalaureate level of proficiency in subjects directly related to their area of graduate study by taking undergraduate prerequisite courses, either prior to starting or as an integral part of their M.S. degree program. The degree designation and additional course requirements will be determined by the department admitting the student.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of English language proficiency. A minimum score of 213 on the computer-based TOEFL or 550 on the paper-based TOEFL is required. IELTS score 6.5 minimum.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Requirements are the same as for Resident Students.

Residency Requirements

Two semesters of full-time attendance at the Morgantown campus is required, consisting of a minimum of nine credit hours each. A summer schedule, consisting of registration in both sessions and completion of a minimum of nine hours, is considered equivalent to a one-semester residence.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students transferring from another institution follow the same application procedures as those outlined for new students. A student wishing to apply credit earned at another institution must submit the "Application For Transfer of Graduate Credit to WVU" form and have an official transcript from the institution forwarded to the WVU Office of Admissions. The approval of transfer credit is at the discretion of the student's advisory and examining committee.

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.
