General requirements

  • The ideal candidate will have a Bachelor's degree in a science or engineering field (not necessarily computer science). While all candidates must have a Bachelor's degree, it is not a strict requirement that it be in science or engineering.
  • GPA: In general, applicants should have at least a 3.00 (B) grade point average in undergraduate work. Exceptions can be made - if a student has a masters degree, significant amount of work experience, specific circumstances that lead to a low GPA, or GRE scores that show a high level of competence for quantitative concepts.
