Application Materials and Instructions
|APPLICATION CATEGORY||SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS|
|Program of Interest||Select: School of Engineering > Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering > Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering > Civil Engineering > Select MS, MENG, or PhD Civil Engineering|
|Educational Background||Students with an engineering degree in another field may be admitted directly to the program, provided they satisfy all other admissions criteria. However, they may need to take some undergraduate courses that are prerequisites for graduate courses in their field of study. This course sequence must be determined on an individual basis and will depend on the student’s background and intended program of study. The preparatory course sequence will be selected in consultation with the CE faculty in the student’s intended area of study. |
Students without an undergraduate engineering degree can be admitted to the program but must take a sequence of undergraduate classes with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and no grade below a “C.” This sequence of classes is available on the department website.
See the program website for more details.
|Test Scores||GRE required. A minimum combined score of 300 on the verbal and quantitative sections is required. An official score report is required, sent directly from the testing center to UNM.|
|Letter of Intent||The letter of intent should summarize your qualifications and professional goals, and indicate the area of civil engineering which you want to pursue. Please try to limit to 2 pages.|
|CV/Resume||Not required for acceptance, but highly recommended.|
