Undergraduate Admissions

Undergraduate Admissions, Policies, and Procedures

Effective fall 2015, admission to all four majors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is currently restricted as described in the section “Acceptance to Departmental Majors in the Jacobs School of Engineering.” Acceptance into a capped engineering major is based on academic excellence demonstrated in community college or accredited four-year university. Acceptance will be granted to the maximum number of students in each of these capped major programs consistent with maintaining acceptable program quality and in compliance with admissions procedures and criteria approved by the Academic Senate’s Educational Policy Committee.

Admissions decisions are made by the UC San Diego Office of Admissions and not by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Please contact the UC San Diego Office of Admissions directly regarding admissions related questions.
