Admissions Requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to a master's or doctoral program in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering are an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0 (out of a possible 4.0) for master's applicants or 3.5 (out of a possible 4.0) for Ph.D. applicants; GRE scores (verbal and quantitative combined) of at least 300; and a TOEFL score (for international students) of at least 550 -or- TOEFL IBT: Minimum score 79. The minimum IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score is a 6.5 overall with no individual subscore below 6.0. Current UD students applying to the 4+1 dual degree program are not required to submit GRE scores.

Although it is possible for students to study toward a Ph.D. directly upon entering graduate school, most students choose to obtain the MCE or MAS first. Students considering doctoral study typically must have completed any previous graduate study with at least a 3.5 grade point average and have clearly demonstrated a capacity for independent work. If an M.S. thesis or other comprehensive work was written at another institution, a copy must be provided to the advisor soon after the student enrolls at the University of Delaware.

The minimum requirements for admission to a master's or doctoral program for a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Ocean Engineering are as follows: a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0 (out of a possible 4.0) for Masters applicants or 3.5 (out of a possible 4.0) for Ph.D. applicants, GRE scores (verbal and quantitative combined) of at least 308, and a TOEFL score (for international students) of at least 600. The POSE Graduate committee may increase these minimum requirements. The minimum IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score is a 6.5 overall with no individual subscore below 6.0.
