Average Revised GRE Scores for Engineering Majors


I'm betting that you were the kid who couldn't keep his or her hands off the crayons or building blocks. You needed to create, design, draw, sketch, and build. Now, you're heading into the field of Engineering, where you can use this innate ability to generate an idea in your head and create it with your hands. Before you get into the graduate school that will help you excel in this career path, though, you're going to need to know the numbers - the Revised GRE numbers, that is. What sorts of Revised GRE scores are other Engineering students making? Are your scores competitive? They'll need to be, especially if you're considering one of the top schools in the country.

Here are the mean Revised GRE scores for students intending to major in Engineering, according to the latest report published by ETS, the makers of the Revised GRE. These scores were taken from students who tested from August, 2011 through April 30, 2013.
