Applications for admission to the master's program are approved by the University upon the recommendation of the department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. All applicants must submit with their applications the official transcripts from previous institutions attended and have official GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores forwarded to the University. Applications for admission are evaluated on an individual basis. As a minimum, applicants are expected to meet the following requirements:

  1.
