Applicant must hold an engineering degree, or a related quantitative degree (major or minor) that includes differential calculus of several variables and linear algebra.
Applicants from institutions outside the U.S. must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree from a U.S. college or university accredited by a regional accrediting association.
Students are expected to have completed both MATH 51 Linear Algebra and Differential Calculus of Several Variables, or an equivalent multivariable differential calculus course, and CS 106A Programming Methodology, or an equivalent general programming course, before beginning graduate study. These courses do not count toward degree requirements.
Additional course work in general programming, statistics, and economics is preferred.
