Entry requirements

The Department's minimum admission requirements are an undergraduate degree with an admission GPA of at least 3.0 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or an equivalent qualification and standing from a recognized institution. The admission GPA will be calculated on the last *60 of graded coursework completed, or on the equivalent of the last two years of full-time graded coursework.

Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree in Computing Science, Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, or in a related field in Science or Engineering with some relevant experience. Industrial experience may also be considered as a factor when considering admission of students close to these boundaries.

Where applicable, applicants must provide proof of English Language Proficiency (refer to English Language Requirement). Any one of the following is acceptable:

  • a TOEFL score in excess of 100 (Internet-based) or equivalent;
  • a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 with at least 6.0 on each band
  • an equivalent score on an English Language Proficiency test approved by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research

It is strongly recommended that applicants submit a 3-4 page document outlining a capstone project proposal. See Applying for the MINT Program on the Internetworking website for further details. While this is not compulsory, it may improve one's chances of a successful application.

It should be noted that these are minimum requirements only. Admission is competitive and applicants will be ranked with all applicants in a given admission year.
