    We require the GRE scores. The admissions committee strongly urges the CS subject test. If your major is not Computer Science, you might want to also take the subject test in your major area as a supplement to your application.The current nominal scores for successful applicants for admission are 750 for the quantitative part and 550 for the verbal part. The average scores of accepted applicants are generally higher than those scores.

    ECE: There is no strict minimum for the GRE's but a general guideline that we look for is at least 450 Verbal, 650 Quantitative and 4 Analytical.
