    Admission requirements

    Bachelor degree and official certificate  in computer science, computer engineering, and  software engineering or related field, from a regionally accredited institution or the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from an international institution that is officially recognized by that country.

    Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.00 (scale is 4.00 = “A”) in the last 60 credit hours of their first bachelor’s degree program, or applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 (scale is 4.00 = “A”) in an applicable master’s degree program.

    GRE Scores are not required.

    Those applicants who have earned a bachelor’s degree in a non-related field of study but can demonstrate readiness by holding a bachelor’s degree which developed the core competencies required for entry or by relevant work experience are welcome to apply to the Performance Pathways. Applicants with a lower GPA might also be considered for Performance Pathways.

    Through the Performance Pathway, students may enroll and successfully complete nine credit hours (3 courses), with an average grade of B or higher as a non-degree student to establish a GPA of 3.0. After the student establishes a GPA of 3.0 or higher, they can be admitted to the M.Eng. and transfer the nine credits as part of their program of study. If students pass all three courses but are unable to obtain a 3.0 GPA, they can earn a certificate of completion in Computing and Technology.
