Undergraduate Advising

Assistance on academic, career and personal matters is available through the advising resources of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or through referral to other offices on campus. Department resources include faculty advisors and a Student Affairs Officer. While you may approach any of these advisors to discuss any issue, the issues that each is best prepared to handle are described below.

ECE Undergraduate Program Advisor

Faculty advising is supplemented by a system of staff advising especially designed for ECE students. The Undergraduate Program Advisor is the best resource for the detailed advising involving curriculum requirements, prerequisites, changes of major, petitions for change of degree requirements, and mandatory advising, and campus referrals.

Faculty Advisors

The best resource for advice on career plans, choice of major, choice of elective courses, and for the writing of letters of recommendation for prospective jobs or graduate school admission are faculty advisors. Any ECE faculty member may serve as your advisor, however we recommend selecting a faculty member whose research/specialty area align with your interests to get the most out of the meeting.
