Autumn 2019 CES & EE Admissions 

The Computer Engineering & Systems and Electrical Engineering majors admit students once per year for autumn quarter only. There is one application form for both programs. The next admission cycle will be for autumn 2019. 

Autumn 2019 application opens: February 11, 2019
Application Deadline*:  June 14, 2019 Priority Deadline 

*The applicaton will remain open as long as space is still available for autumn 2019. The application may close at any time once the programs reach capacity. 

Admissions Review Timeline

The engineering admissions committee will review applications at different points during the admissions cycle. All prerequisites must be completed before a student will be considered for admission. 

In early April, the committee will review applications from students who have completed all the prerequisites in winter and submitted grades by March 30. We typically admit a small number of competitive applicants at this time. 

The majority of new students will be admitted after the June 14 deadline. The committee will begin the admissions review process once spring grades are posted. We anticipate that admissions decisions will be made by the end of July. 

EE and CES typically have space to admit students who are completing prerequisites in summer. We encouage summer students to apply by the June 14 deadline and submit final grades (instructions below) as soon as possible. The committee will review those applications in late August after summer grades post. 

Students will be notified of admissions decisions by email. 

Application Instructions

If you are not a current student at UW Tacoma, you must first apply for admission to the university.  See the UW Tacoma Admissions page for information on the application process and deadlines. Once you are admitted to UWT and have a student number, you may submit your application to EE/CES. If you are not admitted to UWT, you cannot be admitted to the EE/CES major. 

You are required to upload a copy of your unofficial college transcript(s) as part of your application. If you still have prerequisite courses to complete, you will use the space provided to tell us when and where you'll take remaining classes. Your application will not be reviewed until all prerequisite grades are received. It is your responsibility to submit an updated unofficial transcript to SET as soon as grades are posted. Updated transcripts should be sent to uwtech@uw.edu or dropped off at the SET reception desk in CP 133. Electronic copies are preferred. 

Student Information
You must be an admitted student at UW Tacoma in order to submit your application to the EE/CES program. Your UW Student ID is a unique 7 digit number assigned to you upon admission to UW.
If you are unsure which engineering major you would like to pursue, please select your top choice at the time of application. The prerequisites for CES and EE are the same, and the admissions committee reviews all engineering applications together. If you are offered admission and your preferred major changes, you can request to switch programs before the start of autumn quarter.
Please note that all prerequisites must be completed before your application will be reviewed for admission.
Enter the prerequisites you have in progress or plan to take in the following format: Course, Quarter/Year, Institution. It is your responsibility to notify SET once you have received grades for your remaining prerequisite courses. Once all are completed, please email your updated unofficial transcript(s) to uwtech@uw.edu and include your full name and UWT student ID number.
Please upload your unofficial transcript(s) for all college coursework; PDF preferred.
