The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering believes in the importance of building a community that is inclusive and invested in the success of all of its members. The ECE COMPASS Outreach Program partners with Texas schools and youth organizations, especially those that serve historically underserved and underrepresented minority communities, to expand and strengthen the engineering education pipeline.
Edison Lecture Series
The ECE Admitted Student Day is an invitation-only event for newly admitted electrical and computer engineering students. The program was founded with the intent of better educating students on their choice of university, showcasing how UT ECE stands apart from other ECE/CS programs.
This daylong event is focused on the learning environment of ECE students and provides them the valuable experience of one-on-one time with faculty, staff, alumni and current students.
Highlights include: student and faculty panels, lab tours, "Lunch and Learn" with ECE faculty and alumni, and a keynote address from the ECE Chair, Dr. Ahmed Tewfik.
ECE Ambassador Program
Ambassadors are student workers who represent the ECE department in welcoming prospective students. They attend departmental events for newly admitted students, present at monthly information sessions for students interested in applying to ECE, and meet individually with prospective students to answer questions about the curriculum and student experience. They serve a vital role in enhancing our ability to develop relationships with future ECE students in order to increase our outreach opportunities.
