- Function effectively in multidisciplinary environments
- Adapt to various environments
- Participate in further knowledge building opportunities
- Are progressing towards Professional Registration
An applicant for admission to the graduate program in engineering must meet the requirements for admission to The Graduate School. For the Graduate School requirements see “Admission Requirements.” Applicants must submit a recommendation letter from a senor manager or faculty member.
In addition to the general admission requirements of the Graduate School, students applying for admission to an Engineering master’s program are required to submit their Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores taken within five years of application to aid the department in the evaluation of individuals for admissions.
Program of Study
Students must submit a Program of Study during the first semester of graduate coursework. The Program of Study consists of all core courses and any electives and establishes the courses the student must take for partial fulfillment of the degree requirements. The Program of Study form must include all core courses and electives, if known at the time, the student will take. The Program of Study form is located at www.utc.edu/graduate-school/student-resources/forms.php.
Admission to Candidacy
The Application for Admission to Candidacy is typically filed in the semester prior to a student’s anticipated graduation semester and should list all courses not listed on the Program of Study and any changes in coursework. Please refer to Admission to Candidacy section. The appropriate form may be obtained from the Graduate School Web site at www.utc.edu/graduate-school/index.php.
Admission to Electrical Engineering Program
In addition to the general admissions requirements of the Graduate School, students applying for admission to the Electrical Engineering program are required to submit GRE scores to aid the department in the evaluation process. There is no specific minimum GRE score required for acceptance. The submitted scores can be no older than five years old.
Each student’s program of study will be developed by the student’s committee as an individualized program and will be constructed in accordance with sound academic practices to provide the kind of study most suitable to the student’s needs. The proposed program must be submitted on a Program of Study form to The Graduate School office for approval during the first semester of coursework. It is that program which will constitute the student’s graduation requirements. Candidacy for the degree is typically filed in the semester prior to the student’s anticipated graduation semester.
