General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Admitted freshmen usually have at least a 90 high school average, and have followed the expected math/science college track program. A minimum score of 650 in the math SAT section is usually required. Junior-level transfers into the engineering programs have completed the basic requirements of a two-year associate of science in engineering science or equivalent work, usually with a minimum in grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Recommendations

Undergraduate students may only enter programs in the Watson School for the Fall semester. Early application is suggested. For Fall admission it is best to apply prior to January of that year. Fall applications received after March 1 are considered on a space available basis.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

The Biomedical, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical and Systems Science and Industrial Engineering departments have strong engineering design components integrated into the curricula. Each has specific design courses as well, and seniors engage in a senior project in which products are developed to completion, undertaken either with an industrial sponsor, a non-profit sponsor, or as an entrepreneurial new venture. The design project emphasis has been built into the Watson School engineering program to provide this type of preparation. In addition to practice in design, it trains students in effective communication and cooperative learning methods. It challenges their unexamined assumptions about the world around them in order to make them in order to make them more flexible and open to a diverse and complex society.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering and Computer Science program undergraduate and graduate students come from all over the nation and the world. Freshman engineering students take the common first year program, which introduces design concepts from the first semester and emphasizes multi-disciplinary team approach. In their second year, engineering students choose a major and are assigned to a faculty adviser in their department of major. The Computer Science undergraduate degree program aims to provide all graduates with an understanding of the theory and practice of automating the representation, storage and processing of information. Program provides flexibility, so that graduates will have the ability to work within various areas of Computer Science and to work across other disciplines. The Watson School laboratory facilities are excellent. There is a strong connection with the local high-tech industry. Extensive services are provided by Career & Alumni Connections staff to aid in student's professional development and internship/full-time job search. We have strong partnerships with select universities around the world providing exposure to global perspectives, both in and out of the classroom, including opportunities to work and study abroad with select organizations. We have superior quality of faculty research in electronics packaging, energy efficient systems, health systems and many other areas recognized nationally. A wide variety of funding is available to support graduate students during their studies. NSF funded Alliance for Minority Participation (AMP) grant benefits under-represented minorities in Science, Engineering and Mathematics programs.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A combined BS and MS degree program enables students to complete both degrees in a five-year period. Acceptance into the program requires a GPA of 3.3 or higher. Students interested in the program should begin the application process during their junior year.
The Watson School and the School of Management cooperate to offer a combined Fast Track BS-MBA program, which allows Watson students to earn an MBA in one additional year beyond the normal four-year BS degree. Interested students should apply in their junior year.

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.
