Admissions

Application Process A complete application is usually comprised of an online application, official transcript of grades, official scores from recognized admissions exams, and recommendations from counselors, teachers, other mentors. An essay may also usually required. Most applications are completed online, and students should apply to more than one university. It’s important to be realistic about the strength of an application, and apply to universities that are appropriate for the student’s goals and prior experience levels. Some students will apply to a few schools that they consider a “stretch,” a few that are likely to accept the student, and a few alternates. Most universities charge a fee to cover the cost of processing an application, which is usually nonrefundable. Additional university application facts are available on university websites, and from pre-university level counseling departments. For additional tips on applying to US schools, click here. Contact Admissions Departments TryEngineering lists the URL for the admissions department at most universities in our system. Because admissions procedures differ for each university, it is a good idea to check with the admissions staff for guidelines specific to each school of interest. Pre-University Student Opportunities Students of all ages can find opportunities to pursue their career and education in engineering. Find listings ranging from summer camps and competitions to internships and research positions.

Work Experience Programs For Pre-University Students Some businesses offer high school students an opportunity to work during the summer or after school to gain experience in engineering fields. These work experiences are highly valuable and can make a difference in the application process. Find out more through engineering societies and perhaps a local chamber of commerce. Other International Resources Most countries offer a website offering admission guidelines for nationals or international students. The following links provide additional information:

United States

Within the United States, the major source of student financial aid is the U.S. Department of Education (DoED). About 70% of the student aid that is awarded each year comes from the U.S. Department of Education’s programs. The Department’s aid includes grants, loans, and work-study. DoED disburses approximately $52 billion per year in educational program funding. Over 7,000 U.S. and international universities participate in DoED financial aid programs. During 2002, approximately 12.6 million students applied for Federal Student Financial Aid. Of these, nine million applied electronically via the internet. Visit the DoED federal student aid website to learn more. Most foreign citizens are not eligible for federal student aid. There are, however, some instances in which non-citizens may be eligible for financial aid from the U.S. federal government. You can learn about state aid programs by contacting your state higher education agency. U.S. student aid is also available from other federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information, click here.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition varies widely from school to school. Check the the University Search Engine for recent tuition rates. College Opportunities On-line (COOL), developed by the National Center for Education Statistics, also presents current information on university costs, information on financial aid, enrollment, and types of programs offered at thousands of postsecondary institutions within the United States.

Grants and Scholarships Many organizations offer grants and scholarships to assist in offsetting the cost of attending a university. Some engineering societies offer special scholarships. Some scholarships are based on financial need, some are merit-based based, while others may support students with special skills or interests. Studentaid.ed.gov offers a broad list of grants and scholarships in the United States.

Resources and Publications

  • The Counselors and Mentors Handbook 2012-13 provides useful information to help middle and high school counselors and other mentors advise students about financial aid for postsecondary education. This book focuses on the federal student aid programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • College Is Possible is a resource guide for parents, students, and education professionals.
  • Student Aid on the Web covers every aspect of a student’s life from preparing for school through entering student loan repayment, in an easy to use format.

International Support

Co-ops and Internship

Co-ops and internships provide university students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge working in a real engineering environment. Often these work experiences lead to employment after college — and always give the student an opportunity to see what it is like to work with professional engineers solving problems. Co-op programs vary widely from school to school. Some schools have comprehensive programs that cover all fields of engineering, and involve dozens of businesses. Some schools even require students to participate in a co-op prior to graduation. TryEngineering’s university search engine will indicate whether a school has this type of comprehensive program available for undergraduates. However, other schools may have smaller, individual field co-op programs, or even just one professor who places students in on or two local businesses. So, if participating in a co-op is important to you, be sure to ask a university’s admissions office for more details about their co-op program. Find out how long it has been in existence, how many companies or organizations participate each year, what percentage of students are placed annually, and ask to speak to a student or two about how the co-op program enhanced their educational experience.

 

 

Preparation Tips

Students who are interested in pursuing a degree in engineering can prepare for the application process as early as middle school. By selecting a variety of science, mathematics, and engineering-related course work and participating in programs and projects that expose students to engineering concepts, students will have advanced exposure to university level work.

Pre-University students should take as many math and science courses as possible, both during school and as part of after-school programs. Summer programs and internships are another great way for students at the pre-university level to explore engineering.

• Students aged 5-9 should do additional math, puzzles, and building or design projects.
• Students aged 9-12 should take extra math, and if inspired, explore pre-algebra and geometry.
•  Students aged 12-18 might consider taking advanced algebra, chemistry, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, physics, building, design, and engineering concept courses.

There are also several lessons and activities, and projects and competitions that can help provide students first hand exposure to electrical engineering principals. Students who participate in these activities and competitions have a better understanding of engineering and its impact on society. They’ll be better able to determine if engineering is the career path for them by sharing their interest with other students, and experiencing hands-on applications of engineering.

Pre-university Course Selection

While in middle and high school, students interested in engineering should consider taking accelerated courses in several of the following subjects.

  • Algebra II
  • Biology
  • Calculus
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Engineering or Robotics Course (if available)
  • Language Arts
  • Precalculus
  • Physics
  • Programming (Java, Python)
  • Second Language
