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

Undergraduate Admission

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."

ECE Capstone Expo Day and Top Ten Award Winners

Submitted by admin on April 27, 2017 - 1:42pm

We would like to congratulate this year’s senior students who participated in the ECE capstone program and their advisers for a job well done!

Over 200 students participated in this year capstone program, forming 55 teams. Our students’ capabilities, creativity, and engineering skills were reflected in this year projects.

Capstone Expo, held April 26th at the EE building hallways, was the culmination of the hard work our students put towards their capstone projects. A panel of 21 judges joint us today to identify the top ten projects. Our judges were very impressed with the quality of the projects and commended our students’ capabilities and enthusiasm. The capstone teams did a fantastic job and made us all proud!

Before we announce the top ten projects I would like to thank everyone involved with this year’s capstone program:

Many advisers undertook students’ guidance this year. We would like to thank the ECE faculty who supported the program and advisers inside and outside of Rutgers who contributed their time and effort to help our students. Their efforts and support is key to the success of our capstone program and the students’ learning experience.
