Admission

Requirements for admission to the Graduate School, including English proficiency, may be found in the Admission section of this Bulletin.

In addition, applicants for the Master of Engineering (M.E.) program in computer engineering must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution in the United States or a recognized institution in another country, with a G.P.A. no lower than 3.0/4.0. Moreover, they must have expertise in the foundational areas of computer science and electrical engineering. The areas include discrete mathematics, algorithms, data structures, operating systems, software engineering, circuits, digital systems, electronics, communications, and signals. Applicants who lack proficiency in a few of the foundational areas may be admitted conditionally to the M.E. program. However, they will be required to remove the deficiencies by taking prescribed courses or by demonstrating their expertise by taking advanced courses or passing special exams in the foundational areas.

In order to be accepted to the M.E. program in computer engineering, applicants must receive satisfactory GRE scores of quantitative plus verbal scores greater than 300, with quantitative scores greater than 151.


The GRE requirement for the graduate programs in computer engineering is waived for the 2021-2022 academic year.
