Faculty Mentoring (Students at 80 or more Credits)

ECE students who are at 80+ 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.  

We encourage you to set up an appointment with your faculty mentor as soon as your get your mentoring e-mail.  Your mentor may require you to bring a mentoring form, which can be found online.  If you do not know who is your faculty mentor or have trouble meeting with your mentor, please contact our office at 301-405-3685 or eceadvise@umd.edu.
