Admission Requirements

Students wishing to major in electrical engineering at the master’s level must complete an undergraduate degree in electrical, computer, electrical and computer engineering, or a related discipline, and must meet the general admission requirements of the Graduate School of the University of Minnesota Duluth, namely: a preferred performance level of 3.0/4.0 GPA from an accredited U.S. institution or foreign equivalent, and two letters of recommendation concerning the student’s readiness for graduate education, and academic abilities.

For applicants whose native language is not English, TOEFL scores must meet minimum levels as identified on the U of M Graduate Program website. GRE score is recommended but not required by EE. Industrial experience and professional licensure is considered for admittance to the MSEE program. Previous graduate-level coursework completed after receiving baccalaureate degree may qualify for transfer credit upon recommendation and approval by the MSEE program’s Director of Graduate Studies.


The EE department offers a limited number of research or teaching assistantships that may be available for full time students. Tuition is subject to the University of Minnesota Duluth Graduate School rates as approved by the Board of Regents.

Application Deadlines

Applicants are encouraged to apply for admission well in advance of the term in which they wish to enter the Graduate School, but no more than one year in advance of the proposed entry date. The Graduate School application, completed with all required materials, must be submitted by July 15th for Fall semester and November 1st for Spring Semester. International students are encouraged to apply much earlier to allow enough time for issuing the I-20 and obtaining the visa.
