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.
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.
Undergraduate Program Advisor for Electrical & Computer Engineering
Office: 2064 Kemper Hall
October/November 2017 Drop-in Hours:
The ECE Peer Advisor is a senior Electrical or Computer engineering student. They are high achieving and have a vast knowledge of departmental courses and resources. They are here to help new students to transition into the life as a student in the university as well as work with all students in the major who need guidance from someone who has been in their shoes.
The Peer Advisor for 2017-2018 is Naomi OKiddy. You can stop by Naomi’s drop-in hours in 2064 Kemper Hall or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
The Vice Chair for Undergraduate Studies is responsible for management of the ECE undergraduate curricula and supervises the undergraduate advising program. Issues that cannot be handled by the Undergraduate Program Advisor will be referred to the Vice Chair.
