For regular admissions, applicants
should have a Bachelor's degree in engineering, mathematics, or
physics. Students with Bachelor's degrees in other disciplines may also
apply to the graduate program and receive regular admission after
successfully completing required remedial coursework.
Application for admission is made by
submitting an Application for Admission form to the Graduate College.
On that form, MS applicants should indicate Systems or Industrial
Engineering as the major area. MEng students should indicate
Engineering as the major, and PhD students should indicate Systems and
Industrial Engineering as the major. In addition to academic
transcripts, prospective students must submit GRE scores, a letter of
intent describing their reasons for wanting to join our graduate
program, and three letters of reference. International students must
also submit TOEFL scores.

Upon arriving at the University of
Arizona, students should contact the Department Head or the Chair of the
Graduate Studies Committee to receive initial academic advising. At
that time, students are assigned a tentative academic advisor
according to their interests. PhD students and MS students who want to
actively pursue research need to identify a research advisor. Students
are encouraged to contact all faculty members in their area of interest
for this purpose and choose their research advisor with these interests
in mind. Once a student and a faculty member agree to work together on
research, the student informs the department’s Student Academic
Specialist and the tentative academic advisor of this change. In some
cases, particularly when a student has special skills, the student may
choose to accept a research assistantship from one professor while
continuing to pursue a thesis or dissertation topic under the guidance
of another advisor. In such cases, the student must make her/his intent
clear to both faculty members and the Student Academic Specialist.
