Dues Structure

The ECEDHA tiered membership structure is designed to reflect the size, type, and level of research activity of member departments. Although the fee structure is tiered, all members will have identical status and member benefits. Membership categories have been developed based upon data collected from the ASEE Engineering College Profiles & Statistics Book as well as the U.S. News & World Report, Best Engineering Programs. 

Please note: the below data encompasses Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments.
