Admission to the Graduate Programs

Applicants for graduate degrees in engineering are required to have a suitable background in mathematics and engineering sciences and the prerequisite understanding for the advanced engineering courses to be taken.

Candidates for the Ph.D. degree normally have completed requirements for the M.S. degree in their discipline and must pass a Ph.D. qualifying examination. The qualifying examination is a single, written examination that must be taken within one academic year of admission to the Ph.D. program (within two academic years for part-time students).
