ECE Compass

The ECE COMPASS Center is a comprehensive educational support system that is designed to graduate a more diverse, more proficient, and more well-rounded labor force. From K-12 outreach initiatives, proactive student recruitment, summer bridge educational activities, mentoring and tutoring, to building communities of excellence, and providing an incentivized Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) degree, The ECE COMPASS Center utilizes all resources within ECE and across campus to offer a full circle of strategies for academic and career success.

With the support of a community of staff, faculty, peer mentors, corporate partners, alumni, and friends, the Vision of The ECE COMPASS Center is to help all Electrical and Computer Engineering students acquire the skills needed so that they may “find their path” and reach their fullest potential as UT Austin scholars and future engineers.
