Application to the ECE Major
Any student seeking the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering must apply for acceptance into the degree program. A student can apply to either the Electrical Engineering Program of Study or the Computer Engineering Program of Study.
Admission to major in Electrical and Computer Engineering is by application only in accordance with the College of Engineering Enrollment Management Plan approved by the University Council on Academic Affairs. The admit-to-major process utilizes one application for all engineering programs. This process goes beyond a traditional grade metric and incorporates a multi-factor review through which the voices and stories of all of our aspiring engineering students can be told. Students will select and apply to three majors of interest (ranked in order of preference), during the semester that eligibility courses are completed. Learn more about the application process here.
