Interactive Intro to Engineering in Fall 2023

During the week of November 6 to 10, 2023, the ECE Department hosted about 900 undergraduate freshman students in 42 personalized sessions to teach them about the differences between electrical and computer engineering, the ECE curriculum, research in ECE, IEEE, career opportunities available in electrical and computer engineering fields, and the ECE BS/MS program. The goal of Intro to Engineering is to build rapport with freshmen who already decided on an ECE major, bring more interest to SOE students who don't know much about ECE, and gently persuade undecided freshmen to choose ECE as their major. They heard from faculty and staff and had the opportunity to apply what they learned in an ECE pumpkin printed circuit board (PCB)soldering activity. 

We look forward to our incoming class of ECE students in the Fall of 2024!
