Master of Science

The Master of Science (M.S.) program is offered in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. The M.S. programs are housed in the respective departments. While all five programs involve research thesis, some have non-thesis options with additional coursework requirements. For more information, see the web site of the department of interest and the graduate catalog.

M.S. program admission follows multiparameter criteria and is used to evaluate admission to the program:

  • Undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale,
  • GRE® General Test (GRE) scores with Quantitative greater than or equal to 50%; Verbal greater than or equal to 33%; Analytical Writing greater than or equal to 33%. Students with BS degrees in related fields from Tech are not required to take the GRE.
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation that demonstrate strong evidence for success in the graduate program.
  • Availability of appropriate faculty to serve as research advisor(s).
  • Participation in undergraduate research.
  • Post-BS degree professional experience relevant to planned degree of study.
  • Publications in peer reviewed journals and/or award-winning presentations in technical conferences.
  • International students must score at least 550 (213 computer-based or 79 internet-based) on the TOEFL or a minimum base score of 6.0 on the IELTS.
