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.

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 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

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

For more information and assistance in applying to the School of Engineering, please see   http://soe.rutgers.edu/undergraduate-applicants

Transfer students

The School of Engineering welcomes transfer students to our community of learning and engagement. If you've attended a college or university after graduating from high school, you are considered as a transfer student. Please see  

For questions regarding Electrical and Computer Engineering Curriculum, see Undergraduate Handbook or contact Undergraduate Director of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department

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.


Emina Soljanin been elected to serve as an officer of the IEEE Information Theory Society. She started the term in 2017 as the second Vice President, and is expected to ascend to the Presidency of the society in 2019.

Information Theory encompasses the processing, transmission, storage, and use of information, and the foundations of the communication process, and the IEEE Information Theory Society is the pre-eminent community developing the mathematical underpinnings of information technology for the benefit of humanity.

Congratulations on this recognition of professional achievement, Emina!

ECE Team wins Best Paper Award at 2017 IEEE/IFIP WONS Conference

Submitted by admin on March 8, 2017 - 10:09am

A team of ECE researchers working with Professor Dario Pompili have won the Best Paper Award at the 2017 IEEE/IFIP Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference (WONS), which was held in Jackson Hole, WY. The paper titled “Collaborative Multi-bitrate Video Caching and Processing in Mobile-Edge Computing Networks” was coauthored by ECE graduate students Tuyen Tran, Parul Pandey, Abolfazl Hajisami along with Dario Pompili.

WONS, now in its thirteenth edition, is a high quality forum to address challenges such as how to make smart use of novel technologies when multiple technologies or a mix of permanent services and on-demand networking opportunities are available to a network node, how to provide robust services in highly dynamic environments, how to efficiently employ and operate heavily resource-constrained devices, and how to develop robust and lightweight algorithms for self-organization and adaptation.

The paper is available here:

Congratulations to Dario and the ECE PhD student team of Tuyen (Harry), Parul, and Abolfazl on this recognition!

Smartphone Interruptions: Are Yours Relentless and Annoying?

A Rutgers study, featured in Rutgers Today, reveals that personality traits influence and help predict receptiveness to smartphone notifications.

"Ideally, a smartphone notification management system should be like an excellent human secretary who knows when you want to be interrupted or left alone", said Janne Lindqvist, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Rutgers’ School of Engineering. “We know that people struggle with time management all the time, so a smartphone, instead of being a nuisance, could actually help with things.”

Eric Wengrowski receives GAANN Fellowship

Eric Wengrowski is a NJ native and grew up in Toms River, NJ. His Father, Edward Wengrowski, received his B.S. in Environmental Science from Rutgers Cook College in 1987. Younger sisters Emily and Sara Wengrowski are currently Rutgers Undergraduate seniors studying Environmental Science and Civil Engineering. Eric received his B.S. in ECE from Rutgers in 2013. Now a 4th year PhD student in Professor Dana's Computer Vision lab. His research is in Computer Vision, Computational Photography, Machine Learning. His previous internships include Kitware, AT&T Labs, a San Francisco tech startup, Microsoft Research. He worked on multiple projects include machine learning radar signals with Lockheed Martin, image forensics with Kitware and the DARPA Medifor project, personalized photo selection with Microsoft Research, and Camera-Display messaging with the Rutgers Visual MIMO group. His future goals are continuing to publish and contribute to the Computer Vision research community, creating a startup to commercialize his research, become a faculty member of a university or research institution, ...or become an astronaut.
