    At the Lyle School, we are changing the way people think about engineers. Through innovation and hands-on experiences, we are attracting a diverse mix of talented students interested in making a difference in the world through engineering. With our bold vision and assertive attitude, we continue to grow both our undergraduate and graduate student population from a broad range of extraordinarily talented students across the nation and around the globe. In addition, we are fortunate to have one of the highest percentages of female engineering students anywhere.

    Lyle School of Engineering & Global Education Institute

    The Lyle School of Engineering at Southern Methodist University has formed a strategic partnership with the Global Education Institute to provide international students with an alternate matriculation pathway program (PMP, Pre-Master Program) which is consistent with the existing admission standards. This pathway program provides international students with intensive Academic English courses as well as courses from the Lyle School of Engineering for the students to become familiar with Lyle School of Engineering. International students who do not currently have standardized test scores (like TOEFL and/or GRE) will have the opportunity to demonstrate their academic abilities required to be successful in Lyle School of Engineering’s graduate programs.

    Please visit Global Education Institute’s website for more information regarding this PMP program.
