Applying to the ESE program
Who Should Apply?The ESE Program accepts students from a variety of undergraduate majors and Masters programs, including the natural sciences and engineering and from the humanities and social sciences. To qualify for an M.S.E., students must have a B.S. in engineering and utilize an engineering school as their home department.
At a minimum, you can join our prospective student list by completing the request for information form with the graduate school click here and under "program of interest" choose "Ecological Sciences & Engineering - Interdisciplinary"
Pre-requisites1 year of college level calculus, 2 years of college-level science (chemistry, physics, and biology), and a statistics course. Students lacking any of these courses may be accepted for admission with a plan developed between the student and their ESE graduate committee to resolve deficiencies. Please note that students do not need to have an engineering background to enter the ESE program, unless they are considering an M.S.E or PhD that focuses on engineering research.
How to ApplyApplications for the ESE Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (ESE-IGP) should be submitted electronically through the Graduate School prior to December 15 for Fall semester admission. Each application will be considered by the Admissions Committee, which consists of representatives from all ESE participating departments. Applications received after December 15 may not receive the same attention or timely evaluation, and may miss funding opportunities. Typically applicants are not considered for mid-year admission (Spring semester); however, rare exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis.
Materials that are non-electronic format should be sent to:
