Applicants with deficiencies may be admitted conditionally, which may include a requirement for completion of appropriate undergraduate coursework that will not count toward the master’s degree.
For more information about graduate admissions, please visit the Graduate Studies admission website. For more information on international admission, visit the Office of Global Education’s admission website.
Applicants with an undergraduate degree in an approved science or technology related discipline, and who have a minimum composite undergraduate 3.000 GPA, will be admitted unconditionally. In exceptional cases, an applicant without a technical degree or with a composite GPA below 3.000 may be admitted, conditionally or unconditionally, based on strong letters of recommendation or significant experience related to the intended area of study. These applicants should submit any additional information that may assist the admissions committee in assessing their academic, technical or professional background and abilities. The additional information may include a résumé or professional portfolio summarizing any relevant technical competencies, professional experience, and any academic and professional achievements in areas related to the applicant's intended studies.
The letters should come from an individual familiar with the applicant’s academic or professional background and abilities. The letters should attest to the applicant’s potential to complete graduate work successfully. Letters of recommendation from persons who are experienced professionals in the applicant’s intended field of study or in a closely related area are acceptable. Recommendations from former or current professors are preferred.
