Prospective Students

Electrical Engineering and Computing Engineering are two exciting professions that provide a life time of challenging and creative opportunities, not to mention a very competitive salary and good benefits.  Electrical and computer engineers have made many outstanding contributions to our society and world.  They have invented and made advances in such areas as:

  • energy production and distribution (including renewable energy systems such as solar, wind and geothermal)
  • communication systems (including radio, television, cellular phones, and the Internet)
  • bioengineering (including advanced diagnostics tools such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners)
  • aerospace (including scientific, weather and GPS satellites)
  • computer systems (including desk-top and embedded computing)
  • manufacturing (including robots that automate the production process)
  • semiconductors (including advanced central processing units such as the multi-core Pentium)
  • transportation and automotive (including motor control units that greatly improve the efficiency of combustion engines)
Prospective students should visit the UNH Admissions Office to obtain information about the application process, tuition, financial aid and requirements for admission.
Transfer students should contact the ECE Department's transfer student coordinator to arrange a meeting to discuss the process for transferring to one of the ECE degree programs.  Our faculty transfer-student coordinator will evaluate transfer credits and suggest course schedules helping to expedite the transfer to UNH.
Many ECE students participate in campus clubs, intramural sports, varsity sports teams, student government and organizations, leadership activities, Greek Life and a whole host of recreational activities.
