Graduate Global Gateway Program

Master’s International Year in Engineering

The Master's International Year has been designed for students who don’t meet the entry requirements for direct admission to a Master’s engineering program at Baylor University. This program will help you succeed in one of the following Master’s degrees at Baylor:

  • Electrical and Computer Engineering, MSECE
  • Interdisciplinary Engineering, MENG
  • Mechanical Engineering, MSME

Why Study the Master’s International Year?

Achieve your Master's degree in Engineering in four semesters – the same amount of time as a direct admission student. In this two-semester program, you'll earn up to 12 credits toward your degree while benefiting from the personalized support of our dedicated Global Gateway Program faculty and staff. 

As an added benefit, GRE scores are not required to join the Master's International Year, so you can begin your graduate studies without additional exams.

Our students go on to be great engineers – from development to design and analysis to application. You’ll be prepared to enter the workforce in industries such as aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, energy, and more.

What You Will Study

In the Master's International Program, you’ll study core courses in your Engineering program while developing your English language skills. Your first two semesters will be taught jointly by the University and the International Study Center, so you will be integrated into your Engineering program from the start. 

You’ll develop your engineering skills through coursework and practicum projects, which will vary depending on your interests and ambitions. Alongside engineering, you will be able to study complementary subjects such as business, mathematics, statistics and more – so you graduate ready to begin your career.

Master's International Year Curriculum

During your first semester, you’ll study 2-3 English courses, as well as the following two degree courses:

  • EGR 5302 Engineering Analysis
  • ME 5351 Intermediate Numerical Methods

During your second semester, you will study two English courses, as well as two senior/graduate courses from either the Mechanical Engineering or Electrical and Computer Engineering departments.
