Interested in applying?

The UT Austin Office of Admissions makes all decisions regarding undergraduate admissions to the university. Applicants can communicate with admissions counselors about application status, decisions, campus visit event registration, academics, financial aid, and housing.

Prospective freshman, transfer and international students are also encouraged to review additional information about entrance requirements and the admissions process on the Cockrell School of Engineering’s Undergraduate Admissions webpage.

Campus Visits

Students interested in applying to the Chandra Family Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are encouraged to attend a Cockrell School Information Session. Texas ECE also schedules regular group sessions to provide information on our program and coursework. Search for the next available ECE Department sub-session.

You may also request a visit with an ECE peer ambassador to provide you with information about our program and take you on a brief tour of our facilities. We ask that you request an appointment at least one week in advance. To schedule an appointment or for questions about our group information sessions, please contact us at

Note: Students under the age of 18 that haven't been admitted to UT must be accompanied to campus visits by a parent or guardian.
