College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The University of the District of Columbia is one of four institutions in the nation's capitol to provide four year ABET accredited engineering programs and an ABET accredited computer science program. The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has programs that include many design projects which focus on contemporary urban issues.Our classes are small and provide an environment for active learning, multicultural and multidisciplinary exchange. There is special focus on undergraduate research and externally funded cutting edge innovative programs.
While the SEAS programs prepare professionals and leaders, who are committed to making their communities, countries, and world a better place, SEAS curriculum has focused on three basic values: technological and scientific competence, balance between theory and practice, consideration of the societal and holistic aspects of engineering
The mission of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is to provide nationally competitive and accredited professional programs at the certificate, associate, baccalaureate, and graduate levels. These programs enable immediate employment upon graduation or for continuation for advanced level studies in the respective disciplines. Vision: School of Engineering and Applied Sciences aspires to achieve national recognition in the field of Engineering and Computer Science.

Prior to 2008, two-year associate degree engineering related programs were in the School of Engineering along with the professional degree programs. Since a major restructuring, the remaining two year degree, AAS in Computer Science Technology, resides separately in the Community College (as previously noted, the Community College is administered under the University umbrella). Students may choose to do the first two years of the CS or IT degree at the Community College or enter directly into the "Flagship" four-year University program. Traditional engineering students may choose to do basic pre-engineering courses at the Community College or enter directly into one of the "Flagship" four year degree programs.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students should be ready to pursue calculus based courses in the engineering fields.
Each student application is evaluated by admission staff and SEAS Chairs or Program Directors

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Students must have a degree equivalent to US high school degrees with documented grades. Guidelines are the same as other undergraduate admissions.

International Students, who are non-native speakers of English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and achieve minimum scores of 550 on the written test; 213 on the computerized test; or 79 on the Internet test.

Potential international students must comply with current visa requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The requirements are the same as the general undergraduate admission.

Residency Requirements

Continuous presence in DC while not enrolled, financial support from DC, domicile in DC of legal guardian or person
legally responsible for the sdtudent, former domicile in DC
with significant connection while absent, home ownership in
DC, licensed to practice profession in DC, long term military commitment in DC and acceptance of an offer for
permanent employment. Satisfying any three of the stated
residency factors.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students may apply up to 90 credits toward an undergraduate degree. In addition, the following apply:
•UDC accepts academic coursework from regionally accredited colleges and universities. Generally, UDC does not accept vocational, developmental, independent study, internships/practicum, pass/fail, or other specialized course credits.
•Transfer credit is approved only for courses passed with a minimum grade of “C” or better, or a 2.0 on a 4.0 grade point average scale. Student’s GPA at UDC is calculated solely on the basis of work taken at UDC.
•College level work given in or under the direction of an accredited college or university as part of the armed services program is accepted for credit on the same basis as other transfer work. UDC uses the American Council on Education's Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Forces to evaluate military experience and education experiences unaffiliated with accredited institutions of higher education.
•UDC will approve transfer credit earned at institutions of higher education outside of the U.S. and Canada that are fully recognized by the Ministry of Education, provided that such credits are earned through university-level coursework and are presented with equivalent grades of "C" or higher.

a. All academic work completed outside of the US at the post-secondary levels must be evaluated by a member organization of NACES before UDC will evaluate the coursework for a determination of transfer credit. Please visit the NACES website for more information.

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.
