Advising Resources

As an engineering student, it is especially important that you carefully plan your schedule each semester if you plan to graduate in four years. Here are some resources to help you do that.

  • Buff Portal: Use to schedule appointments with your advisor, run degree audits, view list of textbooks and course materials, view your enrollment appointment and search and enroll in classes. 
  • Engineering Advising Site: Visit the Forms page to access petitions for exceptions, independent study applications, incomplete grade forms and more

Request to Take ECEE Courses

If you are a non-engineering major would like to take ECEE courses, you must receive permission from the department before registering. Please fill out our online request form to get started.

In general, you must be eligible for transfer into the College of Engineering by the beginning of the semester for which you are requesting these courses. If you are not admitted, you may be dropped from the class(es). Registration typically opens after the fourth week of classes.

Tips for Getting Involved in Undergraduate Research

  • Talk to upperclassmen about their research experiences.
  • Look through the Research webpage and determine which research areas are of interest to you or connect with professors if you are particularly interested in their research from a class you have taken with them.
  • After determining a research area, read more about the ECEE groups working in that area by clicking on the Research Group tab. It can be helpful to look at the publications of the group and what they are currently working on.
  • If possible, talk to graduate students working in the labs of interest to you. Learn more about their projects and whether or not there is need for an undergraduate researcher.
  • To increase your desirability, apply for funding through options like DLA, UROP, BURST or NIST PREP.
  • Meet with Career Services to polish up your resume.
  • Send an email with your resume to the professor(s) of interest. Indicate why you would like to work in his or her lab, whether or not you have funding, and whether or not you would consider starting out without pay. Specify if you are hoping for an Independent Study. Ask to schedule a short appointment.
  • If desired, follow up a few days later with another email or office visit to quickly introduce yourself. Do not be discouraged if multiple follow-ups are required.
