In order to be considered for full and unconditional admission* to the MME program, applicants must meet one of the following three lists of criteria:

  1. A Bachelor of Science degree from a regionally accredited university in mechanical engineering with:
    • A cumulative GPA of at least 2.8 for all undergraduate work or
    • A 3.0 average for all upper-division engineering courses or
    • A passing score on the national Fundamentals of Engineering examination
  2. A Bachelor of Science degree from a regionally accredited university in another engineering field or the sciences and:
    • A cumulative GPA of at least 2.8 for all undergraduate work
    • Completion of calculus (one year), multivariable calculus, differential equations, physics (one year), chemistry (one half year), statics, mechanics of materials, dynamics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Some remedial undergraduate courses may be required.
  3. A Bachelor of Science degree from a regionally accredited university in any field, plus current registration as a Professional Engineer (PE) in mechanical engineering.

In addition, international students must submit proof of English proficiency in one of two ways:

  1. An undergraduate degree from a US institution where English is the language of instruction.
  2. An official Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report (less than two years old) sent directly from the testing agency. For full admission we require a 79 IBT/213 CBT/ 550 PBT on the TOFEL or 6.5 band score on the academic version of the IELTS.

International students who do not meet the minimum required English proficiency, but are otherwise admissible, will be conditionally admitted through our ESL program. Saint Martin's University is the sole judge of an applicant's English proficiency.

*Students not meeting these requirements will be considered for conditional admission. Saint Martin's University recognizes that while previous performance is a valuable indicator of potential success, there are those who have demonstrated that potential in other ways than traditional academic performance.
