ECE Academic Advising

Upon acceptance into the 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.



Students who would like to make an appointment with their primary academic advisor may do so through BoilerConnect. 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. Students who need help with academic issues (i.e. add/drop, registration, etc.) should see an academic advisor.
