Mechanical Engineering Graduate Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Wyoming.  We offer both the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering.  Areas of focus available in Mechanical Engineering include Aerodynamic, Heat Transfer, Mechanics of Materials, Alternative Energy, Fluid Dynamics, or Materials Science.

The minimum requirements to be considered for full admission are:
   GRE total score (verbal and quantitative) a minimum of 294 (M.S.) or 307 (Ph.D.).
   GPA minimum of 3.00 on a 4.00 grade scale or equivalent.
   TOFEL scores a minimum score of 577 on the written exam or 90 on the Internet-based test (TOFEL iBT).
A complete application packet also includes: transcripts from all the schools you have attended, a statement of purpose, three letters of recommendation, and a resume.  International students will also have to submit TOFEL or IELTS scores.

Only complete applications are considered for admission and graduate assistantships. 

If you have not already done so, please take a moment to look at the Mechanical Engineering faculty web pages (http://www.uwyo.edu/mechanical/research) to see if there is a faculty member whose research areas align with your area of focus.  If so, feel free to contact that faculty member directly via e-mail.  Faculty members may have assistantships available as part of their on-going research.  If research positions are available the faculty member will respond to your inquiry, otherwise there are no available research positions.  Note: PhD students are not admitted unless a faculty advisor has been identified.

The application process for the graduate admission is through an online application system.  Before, you being the process you should have the following form/information available.
