    Students will need to come to campus for one oral examination.

    Application requirements:

    • Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or computer engineering. Students with degrees in physics, mathematics, computer science and other areas are also accepted into the program. These students may be required to complete some undergraduate electrical engineering courses prior to full graduate admission.
    • Background in calculus including differential equations (K-State MATH 240), probability and statistics (K-State STAT 510), circuit analysis (K-State ECE 410 and ECE 511), electronics (K-State ECE 525 and ECE 526), linear systems (K-State ECE 512), control systems (K-State ECE 530), electromagnetics (K-State ECE 557), energy conversion (K-State ECE 581) and microcontrollers (K-State ECE 431). An electrical engineering technology degree covering these topics does not usually qualify a student for admission. Some of these requirements may be waived for students with significant work experience in a relevant field.
    • An undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or above (junior/senior years).
    • For candidates not holding a bachelor's degree in electrical or computer engineering from an ABET-accredited institution, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required. Minimum scores (based on the new scale): Verbal – 145; Quantitative – 155; Analytical Writing - 3.0.
    • TOEFL scores is required for each applicant whose native language is not English.
