Individuals with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering and a GPA higher than 3.0 (out of 4.0) are encouraged to apply. Applications from individuals who majored in other fields will also be considered.

In addition to having exceptional academic records, international students must demonstrate unquestionable proficiency in the English language and the ability to finance their educational programs. In addition to transcripts and GRE scores, international students should submit TOEFL scores of at least 600 on the paper−based version, 250 on the computer−based version, and 100 on the internet−based version (IELTS score of at least 7.0).
