About this course
The M.S. in Engineering degree provides students with a rigorous, adaptive curriculum and research environment that prepares them to integrate discoveries from multiple fields and address multi-scale problems beyond the bounds of traditional engineering disciplines. It provides broad training in science and engineering oriented to solving complex problems that transcend specialized engineering disciplines or fields.
Those holding a baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related field from an accredited institution and earned a GPA of 3.00 (out of 4.00) are invited to apply for admission. If the baccalaureate degree is in a field other than engineering, the applicant should have taken sophomore physics (electricity and magnetism, optics, and modern physics), differential equations and several engineering science courses.
Examples of engineering science courses include electric circuits, mechanics (statics and fluids) and heat/mass transfer. Undergraduate academic transcripts, a statement of purpose, and three letters of recommendations must be submitted. Additionally, the General Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required, and the GRE-PPI score is strongly encouraged.
TOEFL is required for international students whose native language is other than English.
