How do I go about taking summer courses outside of RU, and who pays for the tuition?

You may take certain courses at another institution over the summer or winter sessions (not during the spring or fall terms) and transfer the credit (not the grade) to be applied towards your Engineering degree at Rutgers. Tuition is paid for by the student. Click http://soe.rutgers.edu/oas_transfer_external   for more information on transferring summer courses.

For more information on the Rutgers Summer Session, please see http://summersession.rutgers.edu

I have received my GED. Which requirements apply to me?

If you have a GED you must be certain to provide the following documents in support of your application: 1. An official report of your GED examination scores. 2. Transcripts from any high school you attended regardless of the length of enrollment. 3. Transcripts from any college you have attended. Please note that courses taken in math, science, and foreign language at another college may be used to satisfy entrance requirements.

Undergraduate Admission

Please note that admissions to the School of Engineering do not take place at the departmental level.

Doreen Sparrow Graduates After 18-Year Hiatus

Submitted by admin on May 11, 2017 - 9:42am

Twenty-nine years ago, Doreen Sparrow began her journey to become an engineer and enrolled as a freshman at Rutgers. Her experience in college, however, turned out to be anything but typical. She left school three times – to get married and have children. "It's been a long road," says Doreen, who has six children ranging in age from 14 to 26. When she finally receives her degree from the School of Engineering on Sunday (Mother's Day), Doreen will not only reach a goal that took her nearly three decades to achieve, but she will also see her youngest son, Khalif Hall, earn his bachelor's degree from Rutgers’ School of Arts and Sciences in criminal justice.

Rutgers Day 2017

Submitted by admin on May 3, 2017 - 5:53pm

Rutgers Day was held on Saturday, April 29th in the Engineering Quad. ECE had a large tent just behind the SoE Building and many people showed up…fortunately the weather after the early-morning storm cooperated throughout the joyful event.

Professor Dario Pompili was in charge of the ECE Department's Rutgers Day planning. Dr. Pompili said "A special thank goes to our faculty, Hana Godrich, Waheed Bajwa, Janne Lindqvist, Yanyong Zhang, Anand Sarwate, Vishal M. Patel, and Maryam Mehri Dehnavi , and their students — Wanshu (Wayne) Sun and his capstone group, Xing Di, Mahdi Abavisani, Subu, Xiaoyi Tang, Feng Rong, Zhe Chang, Jingxuan Chen, Rong Zhang, Zhenhua Jia, Chris Mitropoulos and his team mates, Hafiz Imtiaz, Nicholas Frost and his group, and Poornima Suresh and her capstone group — to present their ongoing research and capstone projects, which showed a very good diversity in the topics and areas ECE encompasses. Let me also thank my capstoneers — Allen Tung, Calvin Li, and Anthony Wong — to volunteer and present their underwater adaptive sampling project.

All the poster presentations and demos were excellent and very helpful for potential students as well as for their families to learn about the academic programs and culture at the ECE Department.

The IEEE student organization led by Niral Shah as well as the Electronics Club engaged effectively with our young visitors and their families.

Last, but not least, the ECE activities carried out during this Rutgers Day would have not been possible without our staff often working behind the scenes; specifically, this year my appreciation goes to John Scafidi and Arletta Hoscilowicz for helping out and doing everything needed to support our event, and to Ora Titus for interfacing with SoE in the past two months."
