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.

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.
