Matching Interests to Faculty
M.S. and Ph.D. students typically are funded through a professor’s sponsored research or a fellowship throughout their studies at Thayer School. Therefore, M.S. and Ph.D. applicants interested in pursuing particular areas of research should contact Thayer School faculty for an initial conversation about research opportunities. During the application process, applicants should indicate all areas of interest in order to be considered for the widest possible range of opportunities.
Interviews are encouraged for applicants to all programs, but are not required. To schedule an appointment, call (603) 646-2606 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants must submit an online application through ApplyYourself, 3 letters of recommendation, official transcripts, and test scores.
Graduates of programs other than the Dartmouth A.B. and the Thayer School Dual-Degree program must submit scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Students whose native language is not English must also submit test results for TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
Students admitted with engineering deficiencies must complete required undergraduate engineering courses. Students who need more than three courses will enroll initially as a special student. Students with insufficient engineering background may want to apply to the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program.
Part-time studies are available for residents of the Upper Valley who can meet the requirements for admission. Special and part-time students are ineligible for Thayer School financial aid.
