In order to apply to the Master of Engineering Program, students must complete the online application at the School of Graduate Studies website at http://gradstudies.case.edu/prospect/admissions/apply.html.
Applicants must have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in an Engineering or related field. For individuals stepping outside of their undergraduate field, additional background courses may be required as technical prerequisites. Although not required, the average program participant has an average of seven years of professional work experience.
Questions about the academic program should be addressed to:

The Admissions Process
Students are evaluated for admission into the Program
by a committee composed of faculty representatives from the participating
departments in the School of Engineering, and the Program Faculty
Key elements in the admission process are: the applicant's
overall undergraduate grade point average, recommendation letters,
the student's ability to keep pace with heavy program demands,
and their ability to make substantial, positive contributions
to the Program.
An applicant may be admitted with a full academic
standing or with a provisional standing. Additionally, the committee
may also set certain conditions for a student's admission into
To be admitted into the Program with full standing,
the applicant should have a good prior academic record at an institution
whose status and programs are accessible for evaluation and a
demonstrated ability to handle rigorous and complex work professionally.
Admission to the Program with a provisional standing
will be made when a student gives evidence of ability that is
sufficiently convincing to warrant admission, but the quantity
or quality of the student's preparation may be difficult to determine
with sufficient certainty for unconditional admission. The provisions
will be specified and transmitted to the student at the time of
admission. The student will have 2 semesters to succeed academically
and achieve full standing; otherwise, they will be separated from
study in the Program.
Under special circumstances, students who hold a
B.S. degree in an Engineering or related Science field may apply
as a non-degree student in order to register for core courses
or technical electives prior to applying for admission as a full
standing student in the Program. As a condition for post-baccalaureate
study, the written consent is needed of the instructor for each
graduate level course in which enrollment is requested. If a non-degree
student is later accepted into the Program on a full or provisional
basis, only that portion of graduate level work (courses numbered
400 or higher) taken as a non-degree student and approved by the
Program's Faculty Director may be applied in partial fulfillment
of degree requirements. The term of the earliest course so credited
will establish the date of entrance into the degree program.
