Undergraduate Admissions

We welcome your application for undergraduate study in one of the three majors offered by our department: mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, or engineering management. UIC MIE is a vibrant and diverse community of students, researchers, and professionals, and we are excited about the prospect of you joining us.

One important thing to know is that admission to our undergraduate programs is handled through UIC’s main undergraduate admissions office, so we encourage you to visit its site if you have not already done so. If you are looking for information on how and when to apply, details on financial aid, and a link to the online application, that is where you will find it.

We invite you explore this entire department website to learn more about mechanical and industrial engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
