ECE Advising Office

The ECE Advising Office is available to assist students with any questions relating to academics, policies, future planning, opportunities, and more! Academic advisors should be students' first point of contact if they do not know where to turn to; they are expert on the ECE curriculum, departmental policies, and academic and well-being resources available to students. 

Ways to Connect

There are a number of ways to connect with an ECE advisor:

  • All ECE students should be enrolled in the ECE Advising Piazza to stay up to date on all announcements, registration information, and peer advice. This Piazza is the main tool the office uses to communicate with the student body, both undergraduate and graduate.
  • Email an undergraduate advisor at ece-advisor@illinois.edu. Graduate students should connect with appropriate graduate staff.
  • NEW TO FALL 2020! Virtual open advising office hours will be offered daily for students to join and leave as needed to replace walk-ins. See the ECE Advising Piazza for information on how to join.
