At SMU we consider the total profile of a student that balances achievements in a variety of areas, not just test scores. We consider the quality of your high school curriculum and whether you elected to take more challenging courses. Work experience counts, too. We look for creativity, leadership, and community involvement. In short, we seek academically able students who possess a variety of skills, talents, perspectives, and life experiences.
Programs are tailored to the individual needs and interests of our students, so that students with interests in studying global climate change, protecting the quality of our drinking water, designing the next generation of high-rise buildings or smart highways, managing commercial buildings, or managing large institutional and industrial facilities receive the training they need to excel in their careers.
