You must meet all admission requirements detailed here.

In addition to the university admission requirements, applicants must meet the following minimum requirements for admission to the College of Engineering:

Freshman applicants should have a Math SAT score of 540 or higher, or a Math ACT score of 22 or higher.

Transfer applicants should be eligible to enroll in Math 1710 (Calculus I) at UNT or in a higher level Math class.

For applicants who do not meet the above requirements, admission will be granted to a Pre-engineering program in the College of Arts and Sciences. The applicant will be eligible to be admitted to the College of Engineering on completion of Math 1650 (Pre-Calculus) with a grade of C or better.

Remember, if you graduate in the top 10% of your class, you automatically qualify for acceptance to UNT, though you still need to submit an application and your SAT/ACT test scores.

You must meet all admission requirements detailed here.

All applicants must also satisfy the admission requirements of the Electrical Engineering Department:

  • A minimum of a 3.0 GPA for undergraduate Electrical Engineering course work.
  • Minimum Acceptable scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is 1100 (Verbal +Quantatative)
  • Acceptable scores on TOEFL for applicants whose native language is not English.
  • 3 Letters of Recommendation.
  • Appropriate coursework in mathematics.

An overall evaluation of credentials is used as a basis for admission into the program. Leveling courses will be required for applicants with degrees other than electrical engineering. The admission requirements are evaluated holistically on an individual basis given the academic and possible industrial background of the student.

Leveling Courses

  • EENG 2620 Signals and Systems
  • EENG 2710 Digital Logic Design
  • EENG 3520 Electronics II
  • EENG 3710 Computer Organization
  • EENG 3810 Communication Systems
  • Mathematics Courses equivalent to following courses offered at UNT
    • MATH 1710
    • MATH 1720
    • MATH 2730
    • MATH 3310
    • MATH 3680
  • Physics including mechanics, electricity and magnetism

All entering students must demonstrate knowledge of the material covered in these courses. An entering student may demonstrate the knowledge by:

  • Completing the courses at UNT
  • Completing similar courses at another recognized institution

A student may be required to pass a placement examination to demonstrate knowledge.

After satisfaction of any requirements determined at admission and upon completion of all the leveling courses, the student is required to submit a formal degree plan to his or her graduate advisor and also to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Failure to fulfill this requirement may prevent the student from enrolling the following term/semester. Admission to candidacy is granted by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies after the degree plan has been approved.
