Advising Electrical and Computer Engineering

It is strongly recommended new students seek early advising with our department pre-major advisor, because the program has a strong prerequisite structure and courses are only offered once per year. Students must initially declare as a pre-major (in ET204) in order to register for courses in the Engineering & Design department. Students interested in pursuing the EECE program must complete a set of prerequisite coursework (see Electrical Engineering Admissions) as a pre-major before they can apply for acceptance as a full major in the program. EECE faculty are also available for general program and career advising.

Students who do not complete MATH 124 and PHYS 161 by the end of fall quarter in year one, might not complete the program in four years and should seek advising.
