FAQ

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.

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

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.

Undergraduate Admission

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

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.



Professor Emina Soljanin has received the 2017 Outstanding Engineering Alumni Award from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. The citation for the award reads: 

"In recognition of her preeminent research in coding theory, information theory and network coding; for her contributions to major breakthroughs in the design and analysis of efficient, reliable and secure networking and storage systems; for designing the first distance enhancing codes for commercial magnetic storage devices, forward error correction for optical transmission schemes, algorithms for quantum computation, and link error prediction methods for cellular network standards."

Please see a link to the announcement here.

Congratulations on this wonderful recognition, Emina!

WINLAB Team wins Best Demo Award at ACM/IEEE IoTDI 2017

Submitted by admin on April 24, 2017 - 10:41am



The WINLAB team – Jiachen Chen, Sugang Li and Yanyong Zhang – received the Best Demo Award at the 2nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things - Design and Implementation (IoTDI), held this week in Pittsburgh. The demo is entitled “Motion Triggered Surveillance Camera using MF-IoT.”

The advent of new Internet of Things (IoT) devices has posed challenges to the underlying network design. IoT network requires global reachability, mobility support, richer communication patterns and resource efficiency. MobilityFirst (MF [1]) is a clean-slate network architecture that has the potential to satisfy the requirements of the new IoT network.

Congratulations to Yanyong and the team!



Waheed Bajwa has been voted ECE Professor of the Year by the Rutgers Engineering Governing Council (EGC). This is the second time in a row that he has received this recognition from the EGC. Congratulations, Waheed!
