Requirements for Admission

All students applying for graduate study, Master’s or PhD, must take the GRE test. GRE requirements are based on statistics for all GRE scores of students interested in graduate study in Computer Science and Engineering, as released by ETS (the Educational Testing Service). These requirements change as new figures are released by ETS. In addition, international applicants who do not have a previous degree from a U.S. institution must take the TOEFL or IELTS exam.

It is the student’s responsibility to have official scores sent from ETS to the University of North Texas and these scores must be received prior to the deadlines in order to be considered for admission that semester.

Computer Science and Engineering PhD Requirements for Admission

A prior Computer Science and Engineering degree is not required for admission to the Master’s program, but the admission committee will look for evidence that the applicant has a good chance of thriving in a scientific graduate program. A prior Computer Science & Engineering degree, or substantial Computer Science & Engineering experience, is required of all Ph.D. applicants. You may find a list of our levelling courses here.

If you do not meet the minimum English requirements, you will have the option of registering for the Toulouse Graduate School IELI program.

Admission is competitive, and based on the number of positions available in our program.
