Faculty Mentoring (Students at 70 or more Credits)

ECE students who are at 70+ credits are required to meet with a faculty mentor each semester prior to registration.  A faculty mentor can provide you with valuable information about research experiences/opportunities, elective courses, graduate school, and topics within your academic major.  Each semester, the ECE Undergraduate Studies Office sends out an e-mail to students with information about their assigned faculty mentor.  If you do not know who is your faculty mentor, please contact our office at 301-405-3685 or eceadvise@umd.edu.

We encourage you to set up an appointment with your faculty mentor as soon as possible.
