We have implemented a new graduate application system called EngineeringCAS (a centralized application service for graduate engineering programs). All graduate engineering applications for the fall 2019 semester and beyond will be submitted using EngineeringCAS. DO NOT use the ApplyTexas application as it will not be available for our majors beginning with the fall 2019 application cycle. Please read ALL of the information below before going to the EngineeringCAS application link.

How to Apply

You will be required to submit a statement of purpose that is no more than 1-2 pages, results from the general GRE test (subject tests are not required) and a PDF copy of your unofficial transcripts as part of your application file. You will also be required to request three letters of recommendation.

You will be required to pay the Texas A&M University application fee ($65 for domestic students, $90 for international) in addition to the EngineeringCAS fee $68.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all documents are received by EngineeringCAS by the specific graduate department/program deadline.

Please note that when you click on the application link below, you will be leaving and be directed to the EngineeringCAS site built for applying to the Texas A&M College of Engineering’s graduate programs.

Support for the application system is provided by EngineeringCAS.

Phone: (857) 304-2048
Hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Eastern time)

GRE requirement:

GRE test scores are required for all applicants, except for students graduating from Texas A&M with an undergraduate or graduate engineering degree unless stated otherwise by your department.

You will need to accurately report your general GRE scores in the Academic History section of this application. If admitted, you will need to have your test scores sent directly from the Educational Testing Service to EngineeringCAS (use code 4119) before you can begin classes at Texas A&M. Test scores should be from a test date within five years of the date of the application. If you took the GRE more than five years ago, your scores have expired and you will need to re-take the exam.

TOEFL/IELTS requirement:

International applicants are required to submit official TOEFL or IELTS test scores. Test scores should be from a test date within two years of the date of application. Tests should be taken at least eight weeks prior to the appropriate application deadline to ensure a timely receipt and processing of results. We will use your highest test score from one test date. Copies of test scores are not considered official, but they may be uploaded to your application to help the university/department in reviewing your application for admission sooner.

TOEFL official test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to EngineeringCAS (use code B887) to be considered official.

IELTS official test scores must be reported electronically from the testing center to Texas A&M's Office of Admissions. To report your electronic IELTS, find this exact address in the test center database:

Office of Admissions
Texas A&M University
P.O. Box 0002
College Station, TX

Applicants are exempt from this requirement if they have a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. institution or are citizens of the countries listed at this link.

Guidelines for Acceptance Into the Graduate Programs

When reviewing applications all components of the application are taken into consideration by the admissions committee. However, the below guidelines are examples of the qualities we look for in applicants. Please note that these are not required and applicants missing one or more of these criteria will still be evaluated for admission.

  1. Recommended GPA of 3.5 or higher
  2. Recommended GRE scores of 160-Q and 150-V or higher
  3. Statement of Purpose, which should include the following information:
    • A brief description of you, your background, and interest in biomedical engineering
    • An explanation as to your motivation for selecting Texas A&M University and your chosen degree program
    • The names of specific faculty you are interested in working with and why (M.S. and Ph.D. only)
    • Any other information you think will assist our admissions committee in reviewing your application
  4. Professional resume or CV, which should concisely communicate the remaining criteria on which you will be evaluated, including:
    • Specific coursework completed
    • Engineering industry or professional experience
    • Research experience
    • Professional service (eg. participation and/or leadership in professional organizations and STEM outreach programs, teaching/mentoring experience)
    • Professional communications (e.g. posters, conference presentations, authorship on publications, proceedings, books and patent applications)
    • Awards and honors

Students who wish to transfer into the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program from another graduate program within Texas A&M University should read over the Transfer Policy.

Additional Guidelines for International Applicants

  1. For international students who wish to apply, proficiency in English must be verified in one of the following ways:
    • Required Verbal GRE score of 146 or higher.
    • Required composite TOEFL score of 80 or higher. The IELTS is also accepted.
  2. The University does not consider a three year international bachelor’s degree equivalent to a U.S. degree. Students must complete a one-year master’s program in addition to the three-year bachelor’s degree before they can be considered for a graduate program at Texas A&M.
