Admissions – School of Engineering
In addition to satisfying AUD’s general admissions requirements, admission to the School of Engineering is contingent upon satisfying the following requirements:
  • Minimum SAT® Reasoning Score: Applicants must take the SAT® Reasoning Test and secure a minimum score of 560 in Math. For each time they have taken this test, students should have their scores sent to AUD. It is highly recommended that this test be taken by November of the senior year of high school. SAT username and password required for verification.
or
AUD Pre-Engineering Requirements: Applicants must successfully complete a sequence of Math, Science, English and Computing courses, which must be all taken at AUD. Details of the AUD Pre-Engineering requirements are outlined in the School of Engineering section of this Catalog. Students who fail to  satisfy the AUD Pre-Engineering requirements may be granted admission to the School of Engineering only upon securing the minimum SAT® Reasoning score.
 
  • Math Requirements: Math readiness and placement into an appropriate Math course will be determined by the university-administered ACCUPLACER™ Exam. Students who have the equivalent of MATH 210 transferred from another recognized university will be exempted from taking this exam. It should be noted that Precalculus (MATH 110) credit will not be considered in fulfillment of any of the School of Engineering program requirements.
  • Physics and Labs Requirements: Engineering students must have completed secondary school course work in Physics and two other laboratory sciences. Applicants who have not completed such course work at the secondary school level will be required to do remedial course work in science prior to taking sophomore-level Engineering courses.
  • Computer Proficiency Requirements: Engineering students are required to take the university’s Computer Proficiency Exam prior to their first term of admission into Engineering. A student who fails the Exam will be required to enroll in and pass COMP 101 within his or her first term of admission. In such cases, COMP 101 credit will not count towards any of the School of Engineering program requirements.
 
Students who fail to  meet the Pre-Engineering or SAT® requirements may continue their studies at AUD in a discipline other than Engineering, provided they are accepted for admission into a new program. The university does not assume any responsibility for loss of credit due to the student’s change of program.
 
Admissions – Architecture
In addition to satisfying AUD’s general admissions requirements, students who are admitted to the B.Arch. program must submit a portfolio online http://applyonline.aud.edu/arch/, consisting of:
  • Three (3) art works of the student’s production, which may include but are not limited to paintings, drawings, photographs, models, calligraphy or animation – please note that relevance to architecture is encouraged;
  • A short paragraph commenting on each work of art;
  • Photos of three (3) buildings selected worldwide;
  • A short paragraph justifying the choice of each of the three (3) buildings.

In order to place in MATH 105* (Pre-calculus for Architecture), students must achieve the following: 550 in Math and 320 in Critical Reading, plus a minimum of 900 combined, or achieve the required placement on the university-administered ACCUPLACER™ Exam (Math). AUD’s international code for SAT is 2688.
 
*Students who are exempted from MATH 105 should replace it with IDES 101 (Freehand Drawing and Color Theory).
