Admission Requirements

While a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering or a related discipline is recommended, it is not required. However, if you do not hold a bachelor’s in one of these fields, you’ll need to complete several undergraduate articulation courses prior to admission. A grade of “B” or higher must be obtained in any articulation courses.

Applications are accepted for the fall and spring semesters. All required materials must be submitted prior to the application deadline. Please note that faculty members may choose to conduct face-to-face or telephone interviews before accepting an applicant into their research program.

In addition to the general UCF graduate application requirements, applicants to this program must provide:

  • Official transcripts
  • Resume
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Statement of educational, research and professional career objectives
