General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Princeton does not prescribe fixed secondary school course requirements for admission. The University recognizes the diversity of programs offered by various secondary schools and is primarily interested in the quality and breadth of the student's record. The school's testimony about academic quality and interest as well as motivation, reliability, and strength of character is very important.

Recommendations

The following program is desirable: English, four years with continued practice in writing; foreign languages, four years of one language (rather than two years each of two languages), preferably continued through the final year of secondary school; mathematics, four years of college preparatory mathematics, also preferably continued through the final year of secondary school.
In addition to these studies, the following are important components of strong preparation for work in the University: two years of laboratory science, two years of history (including that of a country or area in addition to the U.S.), some study of art and music, and, if possible, a second foreign language. Students seeking a B.S.E. degree should have a strong record in the natural sciences and in mathematics.
The University will give full consideration to an applicant who has been unable to pursue the recommended studies to the full extent if the record otherwise shows clear promise.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Chemical and Biological Engineering: All students are required to take two courses and a senior thesis that involve elements of design. In the junior year students take a lab course involving design and analysis of unit operations relevant to Chemical Processing Engineering. In the senior year students take a capstone design course, Design, Synthesis and Optimization of Chemical Processes. All students do a senior thesis involving design and analysis that counts as two courses;
Civil and Environmental Engineering: Programs in Architecture and Engineering, Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Geological Engineering each offer two design courses and require a senior thesis;
Computer Science: Independent work done during the junior and/or senior year provides design experience;
Electrical Engineering: Two term senior thesis is required beginning with Class of 2016; projects often incorporate substantial engineering design experience. All juniors complete a project design course, in which students design and implement a microprocessor-controlled scale-model autonomous vehicle, including a variety of individually chosen features;
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering: three design courses required in each program. Projects emphasize design and manufacture of mechanical systems using computer aided tools. One of two elective courses required in the Mechanical Program: One involves design and construction of a mobile robot. The other uses microcomputers for the design/construction and control of an automated model railroad. One of two elective courses required in the Aerospace Program: One involves design of a satellite or space system from conception to critical design review and the other involves aerodynamic design. Structural design is emphasized in one required course common to both programs; at least one semester of independent work with design required in senior year in both programs; Operations Research and Financial Engineering: Operations and Information Engineering 411 is a course where students are organized into teams to design and control a complex operational problem. Students are required to do either a two-semester senior thesis or a one-semester senior project.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering education at Princeton is distinguished by technical excellence as well as a broad exposure to the economic, political, artistic, and other social contexts that drive and are driven by technological development. The Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education builds on this unique combination of depth and breadth.
Engineering education at Princeton emphasizes the fundamental principles of mathematics and the physical and
engineering sciences and is broadened by substantial opportunities for study in the social sciences, the life sciences, and the humanities. Each engineering undergraduate can develop an academic program that reflects his or her aspirations and interests within a general framework of requirements. The depth and flexibility of the program make it a sound background for engineering practice or graduate study in engineering, science, business, law, or medicine. Engineering students also participate in many interdepartmental certificate programs.

Princeton Engineering combines deep expertise in the core disciplines of engineering and applied science with broad opportunities for collaboration - creating an excellent environment for learning and for high-impact research. Prospective graduate students apply to one of the school's six departments, but have many possibilities for collaborating with professors and students from other engineering departments as well as from the natural sciences, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and the Bendheim Center for Finance.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

To take full advantage of the education that Princeton University affords them, graduate students must demonstrate a level of oral proficiency in the English language, sufficient to participate successfully in all the various activities that comprise a graduate education, including class work, research, and teaching. The Graduate School requires that all non-native speakers of English who have not earned their undergraduate degree in a U.S. college or university be tested early in the Fall Term for an acceptable level of oral proficiency in English. Those who fall below this level are required to take a term-time English course before being retested.

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.
