Average GRE Scores – North Carolina State University

Previously, we have posted the average GRE scores for a few universities in the U.S. in 2 parts:

In today’s edition, you will see the average GRE scores for North Carolina State University (NCSU). NC State offers one of top ranked engineering programs in the entire U.S.

It’s located near the Research Triangle Park. Duke University, UNC, Chapel Hill and NCSU form that triangle.

Average GRE Scores UNC

The scores below are listed in the following order (GRE Verbal + GRE Quantitative + Analytical) for North Carolina State University.

  • Computer Science: 469 + 704 +  4.2
  • Chemical Engineering: 485 + 727 + 4.3
  • Electrical Engineering: 461 + 728 + 4.1
  • Biological Sciences: 491 + 632 + 4.4
  • Civil Engineering: 457 + 702 + 4.2
  • Mechanical Engineering: 467 + 723 + 4.2
  • English Language: 589 + 552 + 4.9

An interesting thing one can notice in the above average GRE scores is how the English language graduate students score in the GRE Verbal, Quantitative and Analytical writing tests.

It’s very clear that someone with an English background can out-score non-English native speaking engineering students in the GRE Verbal by over 100 to 120 points.

But scores in Math sections reflect their lack of good mathematical skills, which some international students are known to excel in.

  1. Hi I have done BE in Mechanical and wish to pursue a MS in Renewable and Clean Energy. I have a GRE score of 1160 , a GPA of 2.64 (57%) and a job ex of one and a half years as Planning engineer at Alstom. I am expecting my TOEFL score to be out in a week (expecting between 85-100). I have considered the following universities for my applications
    1)University of Dayton
    2)Oregon Institute of Technology

    Can you suggest me any other universities offering a MS in Renewable Energy?

    My low GPA is a constant source of worry. All the above unis require at least 3.0 . Will my application be considered for admission? Does my job ex as a planning engineer give me an advantage over other applicants?

    Thank You
