For admission, graduate students would be expected to have a B.S. degree in engineering or engineering technology from an ABET accredited (or equivalent) program. Alternately, B.S. students from other related disciplines may also be considered. They should have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0 or higher. These criteria are generally deemed necessary for the student to be successful within the curriculum. However, applicants not quite meeting these standards may be granted probationary admission and/or required to take leveling classes, based upon their overall academic and professional practice, history, accomplishments, and standardized test scores.
