As a student, you won't just tackle theory. You'll conduct original research and confront real-world challenges, with the support of cutting-edge technology and guidance from expert faculty. Our world-class curriculum is a fusion of in-depth technical knowledge, innovation, and collaborative learning.
We strive to identify future students with tremendous professional outlook. Our admission process takes into consideration both professional and academic accomplishments. Admission is competitive; consequently, applicants who meet the minimum requirements specified herein are not assured admission. There is no formula; the college qualitatively and quantitatively evaluates applicants and makes selections based on performance, personal qualifications, and evidence of potential for success.
For the doctoral programs, capacity is also an issue. Thus doctoral applicants are encouraged to submit application materials earlier to maximize the chance of acceptance to the desired term of entry.
There are no application deadlines. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. To ensure evaluation for the desired starting term, applications and all required documents must be ready for review at least one month prior to the start of the term for master's applications and at least two months prior to the start of the term for doctoral applications. Late applications that cannot be processed in time for the desired starting term will be considered for the next available term.
