I’m a prospective student and would like to learn more about the Electrical and Computer Engineering program. 

Here are some options.

Campus Visit – the office of Admissions coordinates campus tours, to sign up for a tour please visit this webpage
Cockrell School of Engineering Prospective Session – The Cockrell School of Engineering provides prospective sessions to students and their parents each Friday (sometimes Mondays) from 2-3pm.  You can sign up for a session on this webpage
Electrical and Computer Engineering Prospective Session – the ECE department provides group prospective sessions once a month, immediately following the CSE prospective sessions.  For a list of prospective sessions and to sign up for a prospective session, please visit this webpage

You will register for an ECE prospective session at the same time as you register for the CSE session.

Individual Session – If you are not available to come to campus for a CSE session or ECE group session, appointments are available by request to meet with an ECE Peer Advisor. These appointments are intended to give the student experience and answer general questions about the degree plan. Contact ece-ambassador@utexas.edu to request an appointment at least one week in advance of your intended visit. Appointments are based on availability.

I have been admitted into ECE.  Now what?

If you have been admitted into ECE, you will need to attend an orientation.  For information on orientations, please visit this webpage

I am a transfer student.  Do I have to attend orientation?

Yes, transfer students must attend orientation and meet with an academic advisor to discuss transfer course evaluation and course selection, please visit this webpage.
