ECE Major Impacted Status


Freshman admission to all four ECE majors will be limited, as the majors are currently considered impacted. Freshmen who were admitted to an undeclared major and decide to attend UC San Diego, must complete a set of screening courses to be considered for admission into an engineering major. Generally, students must wait 3 quarters or one academic year before they can apply. Please see this link for more information.
