Undergraduate degree (equivalent to US bachelor’s degree) in engineering, physics, or mathematics.
The MS (Master of Science) and MSE (Master of Science in Engineering) degrees differ mainly in name. The degree requirements are the same. Students with a bachelor’s degree in engineering can elect either degree. Students without an engineering bachelor’s degree are eligible only for the MS.
A strong emphasis is on fundamental courses (e.g. calculus, physics). Based on the technical area you choose on your application, a strong emphasis is on how well you did in courses in the specific technical area
