We are now accepting applications for the cohort beginning in January 2024.

The application deadline is November 15, 2023.

Students applying for admission to the Online Doctor of Engineering in Cybersecurity Analytics program must meet the graduate entrance requirements of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. See below for the necessary entrance criteria for the program.

Step One: Review the Admissions Requirements

    • Bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, applied science, business, computer science, information technology or related field from accredited institutions.
    • Applicants with other majors are encouraged to apply. However they may have to take EMSE 4197 as a prerequisite course if they have not completed two college level calculus courses.
    • A minimum graduate level GPA of 3.2
    • TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE scores are required of all applicants who are not citizens of countries where English is the official language.  Check our International Students Page to learn about the SEAS English language requirements and exemption policy. Test scores may not be more than two years old.
    • Up-to-date resume.
    • Note: GRE and GMAT scores are not required to complete the application packet, but can be submitted to strengthen the application.

    Please note that our doctoral programs are highly selective; meeting minimum admissions requirements does not guarantee admission.
