Academic Requirements

  • The recommended range represents scores typically accepted at this institution. Scores outside the range may still be considered.

    The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today’s graduate and business school programs worldwide. The GRE® General Test contains three sections – Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 – 6 score scale in half-point increments.

  • Have a Bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from an ABET-accredited engineering program or from a recognized international institution is preferred
  • Submit a 1,000 word or fewer statement of purpose; include your technical areas of interest, coursework emphasis, research experience, professional goals, faculty members you are interested in working with, and any other items relevant to your qualifications for graduate school
  • Submit three letters of recommendation
  • The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for admission
