1Review Admission Requirements

Successful applicants to the program typically have:

  • B.S. in engineering, life sciences, or natural sciences from a regionally accredited institution
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher in engineering or life science courses
  • Calculus 1, 2, and 3
  • Ordinary Differential Equations
  • Physics 1 and 2 (calculus-based preferred)
