Application: Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and we would be able to make a decision regarding your application sooner if you submit your application earlier than the deadlines noted.
- Bachelor's degree in engineering
- GPA 3.0 minimum for the last two years of undergraduate study
- GRE required for less than 2 years of work experience
- TOEFL score of at least 103 (iBT), 257 (CBT), or 613 (PBT). Applicants who have already taken the TOEFL should request the Educational Testing Service to send the scores to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign using our institution code number of 1836.

Prerequisite(s): Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college in the United States or an approved institution of higher learning abroad. An engineering degree is not required, but because of the technical curriculum of the program, students need a solid engineering foundation, which includes advanced math (through linear algebra and differential equations), physics and chemistry. We are looking to enroll students with strong quantitative background. We will be happy to review the foundational courses taken by the students from a case-by-case basis to advise the applicantís suitability for this program. The M.Eng. program is open to all engineering, mathematics and physical sciences students with a grade point average of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale) for the last two years of undergraduate work. However, all applications are reviewed in its entirety, and not just grades or GRE scores. Personal essay as well as letters of recommendation are just as important. We understand that there may be extenuating circumstances to explain GPA and GRE scores, so the studentís entire background is reviewed and considered for an admission decision
