ECE Express Advising 

  • Welcome to ECE Express Advising! Express advising is meant to be a tool to access advisors for quick and urgent questions about Electrical and Computer Engineering major and minor requirements (ECE course requirements, academic plans, internship questions, PTA requests, etc.). This feature is available in the form of quick 10-minute appointments via Zoom. Virtual Front Desk system: https://ece.advisingfrontdesk.lsit.ucdavis.edu

Faculty Advisors 2024-2025

The best resource for advice on career plans, choice of major, choice of elective courses and for the writing of letters of recommendation for prospective jobs or graduate school admission are faculty advisors. Any ECE faculty member may serve as your advisor; however we recommend selecting a faculty member whose research/specialty area align with your interests to get the most out of the meeting.

The ECE department highly encourages juniors and seniors in the electrical and computer engineering majors to schedule a faculty advising after meetings with their major advisor. This meeting allows students to discuss their career goals, possible internships, needed skills, and academic tracks. The advising process is outlined below:

The steps are as follows:

  1. The student meets with ECE advisor and provides an updated academic plan which includes chosen electives
  2. The ECE advisor reviews the plan and other pertinent major information
  3. The student chooses a faculty member to meet with
  4. The student schedules a time to meet with a faculty member; in person, during office hours, or via Zoom
  5. The student then communicates to their ECE Advisor which faculty member they selected via email
  6. The ECE advisor combines the academic plan with the completed degree checklist into one file and forwards it to the selected faculty member to review with the student during the appointment
