Admissions

You’re focused and self-motivated, with a passion for finding and solving big problems. Maybe you’ve launched a mobile app, or started your own business. You’re not afraid to experiment with new ideas.

Continue your journey with the M.E.T. program. To get started on your application, visit admissions.berkeley.edu to become familiar with admission requirements and the selection process. From here, you can also launch your UC application.

Then, visit the admissions pages of the College of Engineering and the Haas School of Business to learn what we’re looking for in our applicants. Then think about how your achievements — and your personal qualities — position you for the M.E.T. program.

How to Apply

M.E.T. is open to freshman applicants only, seeking two simultaneously earned B.S. degrees in one of the following tracks:

  • EECS + Business (Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences and Business Administration), or
  • IEOR + Business (Industrial Engineering & Operations Research and Business Administration)
  • ME + Business (Mechanical Engineering and Business)

M.E.T. is not listed as a major on the UC Application. You must choose one of the three M.E.T. engineering tracks under College of Engineeringnot Berkeley-Haas. If you try to choose through Berkeley-Haas there is no button available. 

Applications for admission to M.E.T. are available beginning in October of the year prior to the year in which you would enter UC Berkeley. The application filing period is November 1-30, and all applications must be submitted by November 30.

Supplemental Essay

Once you submit your application, you’ll receive an additional email from UC Berkeley’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions asking you to write and submit a supplemental essay about your interest in M.E.T.

Expect to receive this email 2-5 business days after submitting your UC application. From there, you will have 10 calendar days to submit your supplemental essay. This date is unique to the applicant and, in some cases, may be after the November 30 deadline. Failure to submit your essay by the deadline will remove you from consideration to the M.E.T. Program.

Interviews

After the M.E.T. selection committee has reviewed your UC Application and Supplemental Essay, you may be invited for an interview. Interviews are by invitation only, and if selected you will receive an invitation by late January. M.E.T. candidates who are asked to interview will sign up for a 20- minute time slot to interview with a faculty member via Skype.

Applicants who are selected for the M.E.T. program will be notified during February or March of the following year.
