References

  • Two references are required. Additional references are not permitted.
  • Academic referees are preferred. However, an applicant may ask a manager or other engineering professional to provide a reference.
    • Applicants who have undertaken a Master’s program must include a reference from their Master’s (research) supervisor.
  • Applicants must include contact information for their referees in their ECE WEB SYSTEM application.  When the application is submitted the ECE WEB SYSTEM will automatically forward an e-mail message to each referee. The system-generated message will provide the URL for the ECE WEB SYSTEM, an individual login ID and password for the referee, as well as instructions for submitting the reference on-line.
    • Referees must enter their references on-line through the ECE WEB SYSTEM. Applicants should not forward hard copy reference letters to the ECE Graduate Office. Hard copy reference letters will not be considered.
  • The ECE Graduate Office will contact referees to authenticate all references.
