Current UConn Students

 

Are you a UConn student — not currently enrolled in the School of Engineering — looking to apply into the School of Engineering? A current School of Engineering student looking to apply for a major change within the school?

OUR ONLINE APPLICATION


  • Apply to the School of Engineering from a different school or college within the University
  • Apply to change your current Engineering major to a different one within the School of Engineering
  • Apply for admission to the Management and Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM) Program (dually conferred degree of the School of Engineering and School of Business). 

 

Slide

If your application is denied — and you have additional questions — you are welcome to contact the Undergraduate Office directly to inquire. Admission into any SoE program is competitive. Space constrained majors (Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Science and Engineering, Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering) are most competitive for admission. Decisions are based on GPA and engineering-related coursework, and you will be evaluated against all of the other students who applied to the same major during the same review period as your submission.

 

 

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS


Admission is based on space availability in the desired major and your academic performance as indicated by your cumulative grade point average (cGPA). Your application will be reviewed in comparison to others who apply, to your targeted major, in the same semester as you.

Applications are only accepted online. The site isrequest.engr.uconn.edu. Applications are only reviewed twice a year – in January and June. 

  • To be considered for spring admission, you must enter your application in the request system by December 25th
  • To be considered for fall admission, you must enter your application in the request system by May 25th. 

You will be notified of your admission status through your UConn email address. You may only have one active application in our PPC system at a time, but you can reapply for future admissions reviews if originally denied admissions to your desired major. You are able to include a first and second choice major request in one application. 

Minimum Criteria (for all majors except MEM):

  • Enrollment in, or completion of a Lab Science related to major (Example: CHEM 1127Q) and MATH 1131Q or beyond at UCONN 
  • Grade of a C or better in most recent STEM classes 
  • 2.7 cGPA 
  • Full time status at time of application (12 credits or more) or a minimum of two part time semesters  
  • Course withdrawals in the semester applying can negatively impact the chance for admissions that semester 
  • CS / CSE / CompE applicants must be enrolled in, or completed CSE 1010
  • Please note: Multidisciplinary Engineering applicants must consult with Shoshana Armington (shoshana.armington@uconn.edu) about intended concentration. 

Minimum Criteria for MEM Admission: 

  • 2.79 cGPA
  • Grade of C or better in most recent STEM and business classes
  • Either STAT, ECON or ACCT class completed with C or better, in addition to the minimum STEM requirements (lab science and MATH 1131Q at UConn) 
  • 24 minimum credits in residence 
  • First semester SoE and Storrs Business students auto admission. Application must be submitted by December 25th.

Note: AP credits and transfer credits are not taken into consideration during the admission review. ECE credits will be considered ​once non-degree decisions have been added to a student's account (spring semester).  

Minimum Eligibility Criteria for Current SoE Students: Be in good academic standing with the School of Engineering for admission to non-space limited programs. Space limited programs will review requests based on space availability in the major and academic performance. Multidisciplinary Engineering applicants must consult with Shoshana Armington (shoshana.armington@uconn.edu) about intended concentration. Admission guaranteed to MEM during first semester only.

 

SPACE CONSTRAINED MAJORS


Keep in mind that some majors are more competitive for admission compared to other majors. The following varies by semester and are not a guarantee of admission. The below information is a reflection of last semester's review decisions. You are encouraged to apply if you meet the above stated minimums.

  • Biomedical Engineering: Previous semester review standard was a minimum 3.2 cGPA with significant STEM coursework (12+ STEM credits) and strong STEM GPA (B/B+ or better average). 
  • Computing Majors (CS/CSE/CompE): Previous semester review admitted approximately the top 50% of applicants, with a strong ​cumulative GPA (​approximately 3.0 or better) and B’s or better in CSE and Math coursework, and CSE 1729 preferred.  
  • Mechanical Engineering: Previous semester review standard was a minimum 3.3 cGPA, ideally B’s or better in STEM coursework, and no STEM grades lower than a C.
