Application Process

There are two application processes to be completed by prospective students.  Please start Step 2 as soon as you have completed Step 1.  Do not wait for your MSU application to be finalized.

Step 1:

To apply for the Iron Range or Twin Cities Engineering Program, prospective students must enroll at Minnesota State University, Mankato.  Please select "Integrated Engineering" as your major.

Step 2:

Please read our description of project-based learning to see if this learning approach is right for you. To be accepted into the program, prospective students must  download and complete a paper application form (broken link)  which can be mailed, faxed, or scanned/e-mailed in.  Letters of recommendation can be sent directly to us and do not need to be included with your application.


For the TCE program, you may schedule a visit to our site at Normandale Community College with the TCE faculty. You will have the opportunity to visit the new Academic Partnership Center that houses the TCE program. Visitation to the IRE campus at Iron Range is welcome anytime as well. You will get to see firsthand how the IRE model works and have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with both faculty and students. Please contact us to schedule a visit.
