Admission to the Electrical Engineering and Systems Science & Mathematics Doctoral Programs are decided on an individual basis. Admission directly into the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering doctoral programs upon completion of the undergraduate degree is available to students who have distinguished themselves in their undergraduate studies.
Strong applicants who are dedicated to completing a doctoral degree are encouraged to apply directly to a doctoral program. Students should apply upon completion of the MS degree and are generally required to have a 3.5 grade point average (85%) and endorsement from the graduate admissions committee.
The minimum requirement to be admitted to the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program is a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (or 80%) unless the applicant was a part-time student with work experience.
Admission to our Master of Science in Systems Science & Mathematics program is not dependent on a specific undergraduate grade point average, but is based on proof of strength in mathematics courses.
