Qualified ECE undergraduate students are encouraged to consider joining ECE Departmental Honors (DH) — an Advanced Scholarship track of Commonwealth Honors College — at the beginning of their junior year. The DH track offers enhanced engineering coursework as well as the opportunity to work closely with an ECE faculty member on research or project work that culminates in an independent senior thesis.
General information on Departmental Honors can be found here, including:
Admission Criteria; and
