  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE): ≥ 275 (Quantitative + Verbal).

Newly admitted graduate students are required to be seen by a graduate advisor prior to enrolling in graduate level engineering courses. All prerequisite and deficiencies in the student’s background for a particular concentration must be addressed by completing some or all of the leveling engineering, mathematics, and/or physics courses listed below.
