The program traditionally admits roughly equal numbers of engineering and business majors. Students who are eligible to apply must have one of the following majors:
Gies College of Business (all majors)
The Grainger College of Engineering (all majors)
College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (Agricultural and Biological Engineering majors only)
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (Chemical Engineering majors only)
Students transferring from another university or a community college and current students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the process of transferring to a qualifying college/major may apply to the T&M minor, but admission into the program will be contingent upon acceptance into the University of Illinois, the college, and the qualifying major.
