No, admission to the program is on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible since it takes at least 3 weeks for the application process to be completed.
It generally takes 3 weeks for the process to be completed.
Yes, the University of Kansas, School of Engineering offers the Master of Science degrees in Engineering Management, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer Science etc.
Yes. You must be admitted as either Degree Seeking or Non-Degree seeking.
Yes. Your application must be complete and you must be admitted to the program as either degree or non-degree seeking
No. Other graduate programs often require these as a way to measure qualifications of applicants with diverse backgrounds. Since EMGT students have a common core of math and science, the GMAT and GRE are not required. If you already have these exam scores, however, you may include them with your application materials, especially if you have high scores and need to offset a low gpa.
EMGT requires a Bachelor of Science in engineering or related science degree from an accredited institution. Engineering technology degrees are considered only with high grade point averages (e.g., 3.8 or higher) and with substantial experience (8-10 years). Minimally, you should have 6-8 hours calculus, 3 hours differential equations, 6 hours physics and 3 hours chemistry. If your gpa is 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale), you may be admitted on a regular basis. Students with gpa’s between 2.5 and 2.99 may be admitted on a probationary or provisional basis. All graduate students must maintain a 3.0 gpa or higher.
EMGT offers a course for students who need additional coursework to complete the Calculus and Differential Equations requirement. Please contact the Academic Advisor (913-897-8560) for more information.
You may take up to 6 credit hours as non-degree seeking. However, to be admitted as non-degree seeking you must have at least one year of professional experience.
Yes. Just as your technical undergraduate courses are a necessary prerequisite to technical graduate work, so is experience critical for EMGT classes which combine technology with management. A minimum of two years experience is essential to understanding and participating in class discussions, completing class projects and papers, and immediately applying course concepts to your work. The expertise and diversity of our students from over 100 Kansas City employers are important strengths of our program.
Courses taken as Non-Degree A will transfer.
Yes you will need to submit a degree seeking application and all required documents.
No they must meet the same requirements for admission as other degree seeking students.
Up to 6 credit hours can be transferred to the program from another institution or another engineering program at KU. Please contact the academic advisor at 913-897-8560 for details.
No, new students are only accepted in the Fall and Spring semester.
Most part-time students begin with one class to become familiar with the time and effort required by a graduate class. If you work more than forty hours a week, have some work-related travel, and/or have young children, one class per semester is generally ample. A general rule of thumb is to allow 1½ to 3 hours per credit hour for homework each week (e.g., 10 hours per week for a three-credit-hour class) plus travel and class time. If you miss more than two consecutive classes, it becomes difficult to catch up.
If you are admitted on a provisional basis, it is particularly important for you to not take on more than you can handle. Provisional students are not allowed to withdraw or drop for their first two or four classes and a grade below a B will cause dismissal from graduate school.
We understand that you and your family are first priority, your job is second, and graduate studies are often third. Juggling these multiple commitments can sometimes be as challenging as the coursework itself. Timely communication with your instructor and/or the department is important if you fall behind or need to withdraw (in order to minimize drop fees and other penalties).
The type of media used—streaming video, videotaping, Internet lecturer notes, chatrooms, CD ROMs, cassette—depends on the particular class. All classes have the same lecture as on-site classes and have lecture notes available through a Web site. Refer to the E-Learning page for more information.
Because distance students work in an environment that is very unstructured compared to a traditional classroom, they must be self-motivated and resourceful.
If you know at the time you enroll that you meet distance education requirements, it’s better to discuss your circumstances with the instructor, select one or the other, and remain in that mode for the duration of the semester. Among other reasons, many classes have team projects and frequent or lengthy absences make it difficult to operate as a team. Alternatively, distance students can team up with other distance students to form a team.
Additional tuition and fees are currently pending for distance courses. Distance students must also have as a minimum software compatible with Microsoft Office 2000 Professional (e.g., Word, Excel, Powerpoint), e-mail, and high-speed internet access.
After your application for admission has been approved by EMGT and the School of Engineering, an academic advisor will be assigned by the EMGT Director. You should contact your adviser to work out a Plan of Study.
The average completion time is three to four years for part-time students, but you have up to seven years to finish. A full-time student can finish the degree in five semesters (including summers).
