In the Global Gateway Program, you’ll follow a flexible program of study, developing your subject knowledge and language skills in order to graduate with a Master's of Engineering (M.Eng) in just four semesters. Our staff are not only experts in their subject area, but in helping international students like you adjust to life and study in the U.S. With us, you’ll have all the tools needed to succeed in your studies.

Your Pathway to a Career in Engineering

The Master's International Year has been specifically designed to help you succeed on the Master of Engineering program at Baylor. A truly flexible program, you will choose your course of study from across the whole engineering curriculum – as well as courses from other Baylor graduate programs. The Master of Engineering degree is an interdisciplinary degree, jointly administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering – so you’re able to study the topics that you’re most passionate about to prepare for your dream career.

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

Fast-track Your Career

You'll complete your Master's program in the same amount of time as a direct admit student with the additional support of the Global Gateway Program. Your first two semesters will be taught jointly by the University and the International Study Center. You will benefit from additional English language study while earning 12 credit hours towards your degree – before completing your studies at the University. 

As a Master's International Student, you will be fully integrated into the M.Eng program from day one. By joining the Global Gateway Program, you’ll gain entry without the GRE, so you can begin your graduate studies without additional exams.

Over four semesters, 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.
