Admission Guidelines

  • Evaluation for admission into the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is handled differently for each category, as described below.
  • Students who have ever been assigned a sanction due to academic or behavioral misconduct at any institution of higher education will not be admitted into the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering.
