ECE Undergraduate Advisors: 

Members of the ECE undergraduate Committee (UGC) advise undergraduate students who have declared, or are interested in, an ECE major.  The Faculty advisors are listed below by area.  ECE majors should meet their advisor regularly to discuss their program and to check for any possible in courses and degree requirements.

Students interested in ECE but who have not yet declared are encouraged to contact a Faculty member in their area of interest, or the UGC Chair, for information.  To declare an ECE major, please contact Norma Santamaria (ns37@rice.edu), coordinator for the UGC.
