Advising

The ECE Student Services Office will be physically closed until further notice, but advisors will be accessible for online advising.

The ECE Student Services Office fully embraces their mission of providing advice, services, and resources for students to make informed decisions about their progress towards an ECE degree while providing continuous support and encouragement that assists students in surpassing their own academic expectations. In line with the University’s mission, the ECE Department holds achievement of excellence in education, research, and public service a top priority and delivers services that create a robust environment that champions student success.

The objective and mission of the office is cemented in a variety of core values that promote student achievement, inclusivity, support, and leadership. The core values positively impact creativity and innovation, as evidenced by the development of programs and initiatives.

Peer Ambassadors

The ECE Student Services Office established a Peer Ambassadors Program to better serve our prospective students and families. Peer Ambassadors receive training to provide outreach and support to future UT Austin students. In addition to hosting prospective students, the Peer Ambassadors serve as panelists, tour guides, and student liaisons to the department for recruitment events. Peer Ambassadors play an important role in student recruitment, and the position provides valuable leadership and public speaking experience. Contact us at ece-ambassador@utexas.edu for more information.
