Program Admission

Systems and Entrepreneurial Engineering/Industrial Engineering

Applicants who have completed degree requirements in an accredited engineering program or its equivalent are eligible to apply for admission. A minimum grade point average of 3.25 (A = 4.00) for the last two years of undergraduate study is required.

Scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) general test are required of all applicants. Based upon the previous preparation of the student for either program, prerequisite courses may be specified by the advisor, but the credit may not be applied toward a degree.

All applicants whose native language is not English must submit a minimum TOEFL score of 103 (iBT), 257 (CBT), or 613 (PBT); or minimum International English Language Testing System (IELTS) academic exam scores of 7.0 overall and in all subsections. Applicants may be exempt from the TOEFL if certain criteria are met. Full admission status is granted for those meeting the minimum requirements and having taken the TOEFL or IELTS since the scores required for admission to ISE are above the minimum scores demonstrating an acceptable level of English language proficiency.

Formal application must be made and application fee paid in order to be considered for graduate study.

Application deadlines are January 15 for the following Summer and Fall Semester and September 15 for the following Spring Semester. All application materials must be received within 30 days of the application deadline (February 15 and October 15). The applications fee for domestic student is $70, international students $90.
