One area of engineering study, civil engineering, has been constant amid the hype surrounding information technology, computer science, and electronic engineering. Numerous Indian students enrol in the USA's Masters in Civil Engineering program each year. There are many high-profile professions in the private construction industry, government urban development projects, and the business of developing hotel projects, making a postgraduate degree in civil engineering highly prized. When applying to an engineering program, most American colleges demand that applicants produce a legitimate GRE score. However, you can enter an MS or ME in Civil Engineering program at several highly regarded universities without submitting a GRE score.

In the USA, the popularity of business analytics courses is rising significantly. It is offered at more than 150 colleges, with annual tuition prices ranging from $20 to 80,000 based on several variables. The range is around 14.86-59.44 lakhs of Indian rupees. As a result, the need for knowledgeable workers who can access and examine company data for forecasting, predictive analytics, business choices, etc., has increased.

Although GRE scores are one of the main requirements for admission, one can pursue an MS in business analytics in the USA without taking the GRE.

The MA in Data Analytics program at Indiana University Bloomington requires three letters of recommendation, academic transcripts, a résumé or CV, personal statements, and official TOEFL or GRE scores, in addition to personal information and resumes.

Yes, pursuing a Master's degree in the US without a GRE score and securing scholarships is definitely achievable. As an expert in the field, I advise students to carefully research universities that have waived the GRE requirement, which has become increasingly common in recent years. 

Start by identifying the programs and their specific admission criteria. Universities often publish this information on their official websites, or it can be obtained through direct inquiries via email. Once the GRE-optional programs are identified, students should concentrate on strengthening the other aspects of their application, such as academic performance, relevant experience, and personal statements. 

For scholarships, it's important to look both within the university and at external opportunities. Many universities offer their own scholarships based on criteria other than standardized test scores, such as academic merit, leadership, and specific talents or demographic factors. Additionally, various foundations and organizations offer scholarships that consider a broad range of criteria, from academic achievements to community service. 

To increase your chances, ensure that every part of your application is meticulously prepared and tailored to highlight your strengths and potential contributions to the prospective program. Effective research and strategic application to multiple programs will maximize your opportunities for success without the GRE.
