Declaring a Concentration in ECE

Professor Claire Gmachl looks on as her undergraduate students present a poster

Deciding on a concentration is one of the most important decisions an undergraduate makes. That's why we make every effort to provide transparent information about the expectations, curriculum and culture of the department.

At any time, students can call or email Jean Bausmith, undergraduate program coordinator, with questions large or small. For academic consultations, students should contact the appropriate adviser listed below. We are available to help guide you to make an informed, confident decision about your future.

Detailed steps to declare a concentration in electrical and computer engineering are below. First, we recommend students familiarize themselves with the contents of this website.
