The admission process considers all of the application material including official transcripts, GRE scores, letters of recommendation and the statement of purpose. No single objective factor is used to finalize the decision for admission or to deny admission. An attempt will be made to match the technical aspirations of the potential graduate students with the departmental resources in order to provide a stimulating academic environment for the students and their graduate education.
Admission decisions will be based on the following criteria:
1. Admission with Unconditional status: A typical applicant who is admitted into the graduate program will have met the following admission requirements.
The minimum undergraduate GPA requirement for MSEE admission is 3.25 (on a 4.0 scale) based on upper division course work (junior and senior level or equivalent).
