Graduate Admissions


To be considered for full admission status, a student's application must include:

  1. An application form;
  2. Transcripts of all previous college work;
  3. Scores from the GRE (Graduate Record Exam);
  4. Three letters of reference;
  5. A non-refundable application fee.

The GRE is required for both the M.S. and Ph.D. programs. Students are encouraged to submit high GRE scores, but admission into the graduate program is not based on the GRE score criteria alone. As a general guide, the Department of Industrial Engineering expects successful applicants for the M.S.I.E. program to possess at least a B average in their last 60 hours of undergraduate work. For work at the Ph.D. level, a 3.5 grade point average in an M.S. program is expected. Academic performance as a non-degree student (GTMP) may be one factor considered in the admissions process. In addition, the Ph.D. program applicant's credentials are examined to assess his/her potential for in-depth research work. Foreign students are subject to additional requirements as dictated by Graduate Admissions. In addition to financial and immigration requirements, TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores are required.
