Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

For domestic students, admission to a graduate program is based primarily upon an applicant's previous academic record from roughly the last two years or 60 semester credit hours. For international applicants, since the grade-point-average is not necessarily a correct indicator, other criteria are used. Two official transcripts of all previous academic work must be submitted along with the Application for Admission to the Graduate School.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Refer to Graduate Catalog for specifics.

http://catalog.wichita.edu/graduate/

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

A minimum TOEFL score of 550 for the paper-based test or 79 on the Internet-Based/Next-Generation TOEFL.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

For domestic students, admission to a graduate program is based primarily upon an applicant's previous academic record from roughly the last two years or 60 semester credit hours. For international applicants, since the grade-point-average is not necessarily a correct indicator, other criteria are used. Two official transcripts of all previous academic work must be submitted along with the Application for Admission to the Graduate School.

Residency Requirements

The doctoral student is required to spend at least two continuous semesters (summers excluded) as a full-time student on campus. Students of the masters and doctoral programs must be enrolled during the semester they graduate. Students may transfer, with departmental approval, graduate credit from an accredited graduate school up to 12 hours in a master program. Doctoral programs, with the permission of the student's department, may include transfer work up to a maximum of one-third of the course work required, exclusive of acceptable hours in a master's program.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.00 in all graduate work.

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.

Dual Degrees

Graduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The Dual/Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Program offers the opportunity for outstanding students to advance their careers in a significant way by pursuing the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in a parallel and coordinated program. In addition, it may be possible for the students to complete the requirements for both degrees (in the same field) in an accelerated time frame. The goal of this program is to provide the student with a high level of academic advising culminating in the preparation of a graduate program of study while the student is still in their sophomore or junior year. Graduate education involves a close working relationship between a student and a Graduate Faculty mentor, and the Dual/Accelerated Degree Program develops this relationship early in a student’s career. Doctoral degrees are excluded from this dual program.
