Scholarships in variable amounts are available to Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) undergraduate students and to Engineering General Resources (EGR) undergraduate students expecting to be admitted to the ECE department for the term of the scholarship. Many awards are based on academic merit and not on financial need. Application instructions for the 2014-2015 academic year will be announced.



The College of Engineering offers academic support services for physics, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering, and other courses. Resources are available at the Undergraduate Learning Center for improving study skills and tutoring.



Opportunities are available to undergraduates to prepare for advanced studies in engineering and other fields.
