ECE Undergraduate Advising Office

Upon acceptance into the Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering students are assigned a primary academic advisor for an individualized and consistent advising experience. Students are welcome to see any advisor for walk-in issues, but will complete registration and discuss any significant issues during appointments with their primary advisor. Should an urgent or critical issue arise, students are encouraged to contact the ECE Undergraduate Office or stop by during office hours.

An appointment should be made to cover issues requiring more than 10 minutes, such as:  primary registration meetings; Study Abroad discussion; academic or personal concerns; plan of study changes/discussions; academic probation meetings, etc.  Students who would like to make an appointment with their primary academic advisor may do so through BoilerConnect.  Please note that same day appointments are not available and a walk-in should be used for urgent matters.  Students who wish to meet with an advisor regarding scholarships, co-ops, internships, study abroad, and CODO should contact the office by calling 765-494-3390 or by coming to the ECE Undergraduate Office (MSEE 140). If a student arrives more than 5 minutes late to an appointment he/she may be asked to reschedule. As our International Student Support Coordinator, Dr. Yuxiang Wang also takes appointments for international students who wish to discuss issues regarding transitioning to Purdue and ECE. 


An ECE Academic Advisor will be available for in-person and virtual walk-ins during the below times  A walk-in is appropriate for quick issues that will take less than 10 minutes, such as:  adding/dropping a course; signing up for research (eg. ECE 49600); quick general questions; getting a form signed; changing the grade mode to pass/no pass, etc.  Be aware that due to unforeseen circumstances the posted walk-in advisor may change on short notice; however, there will be an advisor available during that time.  Please know that there will be times the office closes during posted normal business hours or for occasional need.  To enter the virtual walk-ins via zoom, click on the link and use passcode WALKINS.

NOTE:  Due to a sharp increase in COVID cases on campus among students and staff, starting Wednesday, January 19th, all advisor meetings in the ECE Undergraduate Office advisors will be held virtually until February 1st.  If you need something that does not require an advisor and you just need to step in for a quick second, you may still do so if it cannot be handled through walk-ins.  In a few weeks our hope is that cases die down a bit and we can resume normal in-office meetings.
