Graduate Admission

Admission is by approval of the department’s Graduate Faculty on recommendation by the graduate standards committee. Admission is based on demonstrated potential to complete a graduate degree successfully. The measures of performance used in the decision process are undergraduate and graduate grade-point averages, research performance, letters of recommendation, and Graduate Record Examination scores. A student who has not received a degree from a university in an English-based nation also must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language or International English Language Testing System and is expected to meet general KU requirements.

Admitted students with baccalaureate degrees in chemical or petroleum engineering usually are able to enroll in the graduate core courses listed below. Students with degrees in other branches of engineering or in mathematics, chemistry, physics, or other sciences usually must take some undergraduate course work to provide the necessary background for the graduate courses.
