For Current Students


Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is a huge, decentralized department with a small but dedicated staff whose mission is to support the academic needs of all the department's 900 undergraduate students. Students with questions concerning academic subjects (e.g. course notes and grades) will be best served by contacting the professor in charge of the subject.  For specific individual issues the student's academic advisor is the best resource.

The EECS Undergraduate Office is always available to assist students with procedural information, forms, and advice. Come to 38-476 and check the Undergraduate Contacts listed in this site.
