EngineeringCAS is the centralized application service for all Texas A&M University College of Engineering graduate programs. When applying to any of our graduate engineering programs, you will need to use the EngineeringCAS link. For most other graduate programs at Texas A&M University, GraduateCAS is the centralized application service (CAStm).

To apply, you will be required to submit the following:

  1. EngineeringCAS online application: When searching for our program applications, use the filter to select "Texas A&M University" under the institution section, then use the search bar to find the appropriate program.
  2. Statement of Purpose: Applicants should write a 1-1½ page statement of purpose explaining their interest in the selected graduate program at Texas A&M and how this degree will help the student achieve their career goals.
  3. Unofficial transcripts from each institution you have attended. Any applicant who provides unofficial transcripts and is admitted will be required to submit official transcripts.
  4. Three (3) letters of recommendation.
  5. Required application fees*:
    • U.S. Citizen/Domestic Applicants: $123 - Texas A&M University fee ($65) + Engineering Processing Fee ($58)

  6. Proof of English Proficiency (international applicants only): To be eligible for admission to a graduate or professional program at Texas A&M University, international applicants are required to meet English language proficiency (ELP) standards provided in the form of Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test scores. To qualify for graduate assistantships with direct or support instructional responsibilities, the State of Texas also requires that international graduate students meet ELP standards beyond those required for admission. View the English Language Proficiency website for more information.

  7. GRE Scores: The GRE score requirement varies by program. We recommend verifying the requirement with the specific program you are interested in. Be aware that applicants with a lower GPA or from a school that Texas A&M may not be familiar with could benefit from providing strong GRE scores.

  8. Résumé or CV: (Optional) Please consult the department admissions page for more details on this requirement.
