Admission Requirements

Undergraduate

Incoming Freshmen

  • ACT math score of at least 24, and
  • ACT composite of at least 24 or a class rank in the upper 25 percent

Freshman Engineering Program

Students admitted to the College of Engineering will work to complete a foundational curriculum consisting of math, science and engineering courses during their first year at MU. At least 12 hours of stipulated classes must be completed at MU, and upon completion of requirements, students will be evaluated for admittance into available degree programs.

Direct Admission into Engineering Departments through the Engineering Achievement Program

High achieving students may receive direct admission (criteria below) into the Engineering Achievement Program (EAP). These students may be eligible for special engineering scholarships and opportunities to interact with college administrators. They will receive invitations to network with faculty who participate in the Undergraduate Research Program, which allows students to work on cutting-edge research projects and offers the potential to fast track an engineering master’s program.

Achievement program students also may qualify for acceptance into the MU Honors College, and if all criteria are met upon graduation, they will receive an honors designation and may participate in the honors convocation ceremony. The Honors College option is open to all qualifying freshmen.

Professional development and networking are an integral component of the EAP. Students in the program may immediately apply for the Alumni Mentoring Program to be matched with a recent engineering graduate working in industry who can share insights and lend assistance in making connections.

Transfer Students

Students from other institutions must:

Current MU students must have:

      • 24 credit hours with 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA
      • Good academic standing
      • Calculus I with a C- grade or higher

All transfer students must meet all core curriculum and GPA requirements on the admission requirement table above to directly enter an engineering degree program. Students who meet all criteria for admission to the college but not all departmental criteria will enter the college with an undeclared engineering status until all requirements are met.
