Admission to this program is based on the student's interest being compatible with faculty interest, funds, and facilities. Admission is given only after a thorough review of the student's academic background, research interests, and potential. Individual programs normally consist of three years' work beyond the bachelor's degree. The department does not have a mandatory foreign language requirement. Students are required, however, to broaden their education in an area outside the normal engineering and science curricula. This can be done by taking courses in the humanities and social sciences, demonstrating an in-depth proficiency in a foreign language, or participating in an equivalent broadening educational experience.
