Prospective MS Students


The College of Engineering (CoE) offers MS Merit Scholarships to admitted applicants who demonstrated exemplary achievements. These scholarships offer up to 40% of direct tuition costs. We do not offer research/teaching assistantships or fellowships for MS studies. Applicants who wish to be considered for a Scholarship must indicate so on the application for admission. They must also complete and submit the supplemental MS Merit Scholarship Application form.

Admission Requirements

Applicants need a strong academic record, as evidenced by:

  • Grades in relevant coursework (cumulative gpa > 3.0)
  • High scores on the GRE General Test (verbal plus quantitative > 300)
  • Comprehensive letters of recommendation
  • Acceptable scores on TOEFL or ILETS exams (English proficiency exams for international students only)

A BS degree in engineering is usually required for admission into a MS program. We will also consider students who do not have a engineering degree, but may ask them to take pre-requisite coursework to meet our admission requirements.
