SEAS 1001: Engineering Orientation is a required course for all freshmen engineering and computer science students. The purpose of the course is to introduce the students to the culture of college life, the rigors of the engineering and computer science curricula, and the profession of engineering. It is also designed to provide a sense of community and a support system for the new students. They work together on design teams, join tutoring and study groups, and participate in social activities as a class. In the first part of the semester, students attend general engineering lectures, followed by laboratory experiences that provide academic and computer tools useful to all SEAS students. In the second part of the semester, students attend lectures and laboratory sessions for their specific major fields.
The Office of SEAS Student Services organizes mentoring activities and tutoring services for freshman and sophomore SEAS students, guides SEAS student groups, and also provides referrals to the various services and support systems available to GW students.
The Office SEAS Career Services provides a system to enhance the opportunities for undergraduate internships. The office also coordinates tours of federal laboratories, and hosts employers to provide discipline-specific critiques of students' resumes in preparation for employment applications.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Name just about any pressing technological, biomedical, environmental, or infrastructure problem and the chances are good that someone at the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) is already at work on a practical, innovative solution. Both the curriculum and student needs undergo frequent reevaluation. Whenever necessary, programs are revised and departments are reorganized to meet changing engineering requirements and to uphold the highest academic and research standards. SEAS is at the vortex of technological innovation. The Washington metropolitan area is second only to Silicon Valley in its concentration of high-tech companies. Technology transfer between the school and industry fosters many successful partnerships, and students at all levels are strongly encouraged in engage in internships. As an active participant in the World Wide Web Consortium, SEAS has assumed a large role in developing common protocols for the Web. Because its main campus sits in the heart of the nation's capital, SEAS enjoys easy access to government agencies as well as world-class research facilities. Strong ties to the international community give SEAS a unique global perspective.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Requirements for admission are as follows:
1.An acceptable certificate of graduation from an accredited secondary school. The progam must include four years of English; four years of mathematics, including two years of algebra, one year of plane geometry, one-half year of trigonometry, and one-half year of precalculus, analytic geometry, or functions; one year each of physics and chemistry (general science courses do not satisfy this requirement); and two years of history or a foreign language. Applicants who do not meet all of these requirements may be admitted to a prescribed program that includes courses to make up the deficiencies.
2.Standardized test scores on SAT I or ACT. Although no minimum scores are prescribed, test results are considered in determining admission eligibility. SAT II subject tests in writing and mathematics are recommended.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Same as above.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Same as above, and, in addition, an acceptable score on the TOEFL exam.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students.

Residency Requirements

A minimum of 60 credit hours in residence are required.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

To be considered for admission as a transfer student, an applicant must be in good standing as to scholarship and conduct at all postsecondary institutions previously attended and should have a minimum grade-point average of approximately 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. A student who has been academically dismissed will not normally be considered for admission.

When no duplication is involved, either through course work or examination, transfer credit may be granted for work successfully completed at other accredited institutions of higher learning prior to enrolling at GW. Credit will be granted only when such work meets the requirements for the degree sought at GW. Courses graded D+, or the equivalent, or lower will not be considered for transfer.

Although there is no strict limit to the total amount of transfer credit that may be assigned, a student must satisfy the 60-credit-hour residence requirement and course requirements for the degree sought at GW. Students should complete a Transfer of Credit worksheet, available in the SEAS Office of Undergraduate Student Services, Advising and Records, and present the worksheet to the faculty advisor for approval.

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.
