BSME admission and enrollment statistics

ME considers a variety of factors beyond cumulative and prerequisite GPAs in its admission process. Selection is also based on your personal statement, overall academic track record, and the potential for success as an ME major and in the profession. We encourage prospective students to schedule an appointment with undergraduate advising to understand how to be a competitive applicant.
