The deadlines for ME applications for U.S. citizens and permanent residents are August 1 for the Fall semester and January 5 for spring semester. The deadlines for non-U.S. citizens are April 1 for fall semester and September 29 for spring semester. We seek motivated students from DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS who are eager to partner with us in education and discovery. Information about academic eligibility and the admissions process is available on the UVA ENGINEERING SCHOOL’S GRADUATE ADMISSIONS webpage. All applications are submitted online. The application fee for UVA Engineering graduate programs is $85; however, we are thrilled to share that a fee waiver for the $85 application fee will be automatically applied to your application if you are applying for 2024 admission.
Through the generosity of our friends and alumni, our department is pleased to award scholarships to select exceptionally qualified ME candidates. Recipients receive $5,000 per academic year. All candidates are evaluated by the graduate program directors on academic performance, and at their discretion, the recipients are selected. The selected recipients are notified with a letter from the department.
Accepted ME students are also eligible to serve as graders for SIE undergraduate and graduate courses. Students interested in serving as a grader should contact the SIE Graduate Program Director and ME Program Director directly. The hourly rate for ME student graders is $21/hour for up to 20 hours per week.
