Admission

The UC Davis Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is seeking graduate students for our master’s program. Admission to the UC Davis master’s program in electrical and computer engineering is competitive. Successful applicants in recent years had an average undergraduate GPA above 3.5 (out of 4.0) and average GRE scores of 770 (161 on the new exam) Quantitative, 490 (152) Verbal, and 4.0 Analytical.

Entering students normally are expected to have completed the B.S. degree requirements with at least a 3.5/4.0 grade-point average in upper-division technical courses.

However, admission decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, with emphasis placed on the promise of success in graduate studies and research, as judged by the students’ previous research experience, college record, statement of purpose and letters of recommendation.

Diversity is a core component of excellence at UC Davis. We believe the demographic profile of UC students and scholars generally should reflect the gender, racial and ethnic profile of the pools from which we recruit and selects students.

To be considered for financial support, all application materials (including online application, recommendation letters, transcripts, GRE/TOEFL scores) must be submitted by January 15, 2018.

All U.S. citizens and permanent residents are encouraged to file a FAFSA. Permitting available space, applicants with their own funding are accepted until June 1, 2018.
