Move Forward Program

While Texas ECE recognizes that many of our students are successful in designing a fabric of resources and supportive systems such as professors, advisors and fellow classmates, there are some who can truly benefit from additional assistance in excelling in our program.

Since 2008, The Move Forward Program (MFP) has connected academically 'at-risk and in reach’ Texas ECE undergraduate students to resources available through our department, the Cockrell School of Engineering and The University of Texas at Austin at-large before they reach the point of an academic crisis. We believe that monthly meetings with each professor and program coordinator to discuss academic progress and to encourage active participation in all of their classes will help empower the Texas ECE student to reach his or her fullest potential.

At the end of the Fall and Spring semester, eligible students are invited to schedule an appointment early in the semester to discuss semester goals and plan out strategies to improve academic performance. Required monthly meetings with the program coordinator allows the MFP participant to touch base and revisit semester goals and strategies for success.

Faculty Support

Our faculty play a critical role in a student’s success at UT Austin.  MFP participants are required to schedule monthly meetings with all of their professors to review their academic performance, and to receive tips and suggestions on how to best learn the course's material. 

MFP/HKN Mentoring

In partnership with Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), The Move Forward Program offers MFP participants the opportunity to receive peer mentoring for the semester.
