Entrance Guidelines

Have a love for mathematics and science?

Often wonder how things really work?

Would you like to work on society's most interesting technology challenges?

... then you should consider a career in electrical and computer engineering. The Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering degree programs at UNH provide students with a sound education in electrical engineering and computer engineering with a solid theoretical understanding and extensive laboratory experience.

Undergraduate applicants to the program should have a broad high school level background in mathematics and science.  Core mathematics courses in the ECE program build on the student’s firm understanding of algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus.  Most students have completed high school equivalent pre-calculus courses.  A background in high school level physics will prepare the student for the core ECE physics requirements.  Of course, any experience in designing electric circuits, building or programming personal computers, operating amateur radios, configuring networks, working with automotive electronics, or building home entertainment systems helps a student understand how electrical and computer engineering is applied to the design of modern electronic devices and systems.

Students who would like to transfer from another university, college, or technical institute should contact one of our Transfer Student Coordinators.  In most cases students are given credit for course work they have successfully completed at other institutions.

The Admissions Office at the University of New Hampshire handles all applications to the ECE Department.  You can find information about the Admissions Office, the acceptance criteria and deadlines, the undergraduate or graduate application process, tuition and expenses, or how to apply on-line from the provided links.
