Ph.D. Engineering - MAE: Admission Requirements

Regular admission to the Ph.D. program with an MAE focus normally requires a Master of Science (M.S.) in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or other closely related field with a 3.3 grade-point-average (GPA) on all previous college work. Exceptional students with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) will also be considered for normal admission. Students not admitted on a regular basis may be admitted provisionally depending on their overall application file and their GRE score. A provisional admission is subject to approval of the MAE Graduate Affairs Committee. Remedial courses are usually required of such students. The Graduate Records Examination (GRE) is required of any student who falls below the minimum GPA requirement, is not a graduate of an ABET-accredited undergraduate program in mechanical or aerospace engineering, or is a graduate of a foreign university. Foreign university graduates applying from outside the USA are required to pass the TOEFL examination with a minimum score of 550. In certain circumstances, the TOEFL may be waived.
