President.s Message Welcomes You!
GIST encourages applications from candidates with strong academic potential, high motivation for pursuing a career in the areas of science and technology, and focused intellectual and professional interests
The Admissions Committee is composed of faculty members. Applications are usually reviewed by at least four readers. Admissions decisions are based on an evaluation of all materials submitted in combination with the application.
One's study plan, professional experience, and letters of recommendation provide very important qualitative evidence concerning an applicant's academic records, professional background, and potential. Strong academic records and high test scores do not ensure admission. Other kinds of significant achievement, including the overcoming of economic, societal or educational obstacles are also considered important.
The admissions review is based on a comparison of the applicant's qualifications among all those who apply. The school weighs the general admissions criteria in ways that can ensure the diversity of student background, experience, and interest. Each year, the number of applicants may outnumber the available enrollment. Therefore it requires the complex task of selection involving a careful evaluation of past accomplishment and future promise.
We suggest that all application materials be enclosed when the completed documents are sent to the Section of Student Services. Although applicants may submit a resume, they should not refer to the resume for any if tge sections of the application. We acknowledge receipt of all applications; however, it is the applicant's responsibility to check with the Section of Admissions to verify that all materials have been received. The application and all accompanying materials become the property of GIST and are nonreturnable
Your typed statement is a very important part of your application and is reviewed with great care. We would like your statement to address your past and current professional experiences, your academic interests and objectives, and your future goals. In addition, please feel free to add any other relevant information. It is imperative that the statement of purpose is fully representative of who you are, how our program matches your academic needs, and what you will do after graduating.
Please take full responsibility for the accuracy of the documentation that you provide. In the event that any academic information that you submitted is found to be false or to contain inaccurate statements, your admission to GIST will be cancelled. The information given on the online application is one way we verify the validity of your academic history. We will also contact your Registrar to verify your most recent degree
Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work are required. Applicants must submit university records verified by the appropriate university official. Such records should show courses completed, grades received, grading scales, duration of study, degree or diploma received, and percentile rank in class. Be sure to specify to your school(s) that your transcripts should be sent to you in a sealed envelope. In the case that your university does not allow the release of your transcripts to you, we will accept such credentials sent directly from the college or university. If you attended more than one college, submit one transcript of grades from each institution. If you are currently a student, do not wait for mid-year grades; submit a transcript of grades through the preceding term. You must submit a transcript from all institutions listed on the application. If your credentials will be submitted under any other name, please indicate this on the first page of your application
Applicants are requested to submit, with other application materials, two letters of recommendation. These letters must be forwarded in sealed envelopes to the applicant. Recommendation forms should be given to people who have worked closely with you in either an academic or professional capacity and who will be able to relate specific information about your performance and abilities. Recommendations must be written by faculty members of the school or institution you attended who are familiar with your academic work. It is helpful if recommendations come from individuals who are able to comment on different aspects of your performance.
