OAEE Graduate Admissions for International Students (Campus Programs)
The Professional Master of Engineering (ENPM) Program is open to qualified applicants holding a regionally accredited baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related field.
* Due to the brief nature of the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (GCEN) program (12 credits), the GCEN program is not available to international students as they would not qualify for a student visa. International students are welcome to apply for an online GCEN program if it is available.
Minimum GPA requirement is 3.0.
The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is not required for application to the ENPM program.
Fall - March 15
Spring - September 30
