MSAI Admissions

On-Campus Software Engineering Admissions

Candidates must meet all university admission requirements. Applicants can be admitted in either classified or conditionally classified standing. If an applicant’s preparation for advanced graduate work is considered inadequate to meet the course prerequisites or other departmental requirements, the conditions will include taking preparatory courses to meet these requirements. These courses will not count as part of the master’s degree program requirements.

For acceptance by the Department of Computer Engineering, the applicant must satisfy the following requirements:

  1. Undergraduate degree in math, physics, computer science, engineering, or a closely related field, equivalent to a four-year U.S. undergraduate baccalaureate degree, with demonstrated college-level courses in programming, data structures, algorithm design, three-semester sequence of calculus, linear algebra and statistics.

  2. Undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.

  3. If undergraduate program is not ABET accredited, GRE is required with minimum GRE q+v of 294 and GRE AWA of 3.0. GRE q+v minimum higher than 294 may be required for successful admission depending on the number of applicants.

  4. International applicants must meet SJSU’s minimum requirements on English-language proficiency tests.
