HOW DO UCSD UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS APPLY TO AN IMPACTED ECE MAJOR?

The ECE Department may grant admission to UCSD undergraduate students who were not admitted to the department as entering students. Admission will be considered for students who have completed the courses above demonstrating special aptitude for the ECE curriculum.

  • Details of the full application process is available on MyJSOE Major Change Application.
  • Students may apply in any quarter after they have completed the courses above but should take into consideration time to graduation. They will be ranked according to grades received from the above list. All courses will be weighted equally.
  • Applicants will be chosen from this ranking until all open slots in the major are filled.

PLEASE NOTE:

Transfer students who enter in fall 2014 and continuing students can switch into any ECE major using the Major/Minor Tool on Tritonlink.

Effective fall quarter 2015, all engineering majors will be considered impacted.
