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.

How can I check the status of my application?

All students who provide a valid email address on their online application will receive an immediate email response confirming its receipt. You may check the status of your application at Your Rutgers Status screen. You will need your nine-digit ID number or your assigned student identification number and your PIN to access this secure site.

What are Special Permission Numbers and Pre-requisite Overrides? How do I get one?

Find more information on special permission numbers and pre-requisite overrides  here.

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

Where do I get verification of being a full time student?

To get verification of being a full time student, contact the Office of Verifications in ASB, Room 200L at (732) 445-7000. Students can also request full time enrollment via the Registrar's website. You can find more information on transcripts and verification  here.


Professor Shantenu Jha is a co-PI and the lead Computing Engineer/Science Faculty on a new $20M NSF Scientific Software Innovation Institutes for Molecular Sciences. The Institute called MolSSI -- Molecular Science Software Institute, will enable computational scientists to tackle problems that are significantly larger and more complex than those currently within reach. MolSSI will impact domains that use molecular simulations -- from proteins and drug designs to the next generation of materials.


Professor Shantenu Jha has been invited to The White House on July 29 to attend a workshop being held on the one year anniversary of the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NCSI). At this event organized by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Professor Jha and fellow invitees will discuss high-performance computing and its role in advancing U.S. economic competitiveness, scientific discovery, and innovation.

Tong Wu Wins Best Student Paper Award

Submitted by admin on July 12, 2016 - 5:35pm

Tong Wu, who is a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of ECE and is being supervised by Prof. Waheed Bajwa, has won the Best Student Paper Award at the 12th IEEE Image Video and Multidimensional Signal Processing (IVMSP) Workshop for his paper entitled "Clustering-aware structure-constrained low-rank representation model for learning human action attributes."

This work, which is a collaboration between Rutgers and Drs. Raghuveer Rao and Prudhvi Gurram at the Army Research Lab in Adelphi, MD, is expected to help robots autonomously interact with humans in their surroundings.
