College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The college offers four-year undergraduate programs in engineering and computer science. The first two years emphasize fundamentals, followed by two years of specialized education in one of seven majors. Honors programs are available in all departments. Co-op is an option in all programs. Most courses are offered in both day and evening to allow employed students to complete their studies on a part-time basis. Senior students are prepared and encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination. The college also offers eleven master's degree programs and two Ph.D. degree programs. The graduate programs are broad in scope and interdisciplinary and provide students flexibility in structuring a program of study.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

The basic requirement for admission to the M.S. programs is a bachelor's degree in the major or a related area with an overall undergraduate GPA of at least 2.7 (on a 4.0 scale) for engineering or 3.0 for computer engineering or computer science. The minimum admission requirements for the Ph.D. program in engineering is a B.S. from an ABET-accredited engineering program, with a minimum 3.0 GPA, or an M.S. from an engineering program, with a minimum 3.5 GPA. The minimum admission requirements for the Ph.D. program in computer science and engineering is a B.S. in computer science, computer engineering, or a related area, with a minimum 3.3 GPA. Scores on the GRE General Test are required of all applicants for the M.S. in CS or CEG and the Ph.D. programs.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Same as admission to the college.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

If the applicant's native language is not English, a minimum score of 213(CBT) or 79/120(IBT) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required or a band 6 through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). PTE scores are a minimum of 57. Applicants must also meet Immigration and Naturalization Service visa requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students.

Residency Requirements

Completion of a minimum of 50% of the required graduate credit hours toward the master's degree must be completed at Wright State University. Students in a Ph.D. program are considered to be in residence for any term for which they are registered for at least eight quarter hours or six semester hours of Wright State graduate courses. A minimum residence of three consecutive full-time academic quarters or two consecutive full-time academic semesters at Wright State University, devoted wholly to graduate work, is required.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Same as for other students.

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.
