Visitor information

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering's main office is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in Hamerschlag Hall. The department also has a presence in Porter Hall, Roberts Hall, Wean Hall, and Hamburg Hall.

Department tours and information sessions are offered during the fall and spring semesters. Tours are led by current students and provide insights into the electrical and computer engineering academic experience, campus life, and available metacurricular activities within the department. A Q&A session will follow.

Department information sessions are for prospective undergraduate students interested in electrical and computer engineering. For undergraduate admission-related questions, campus tours, and university information sessions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

Additional information can be found on the university's visitor page.

ECE tours will resume on approximately January 27th, 2020, as our tour guides are ECE students and are not present while classes are not in session. Prospective undergraduate students and their families may start to sign up for tours around mid-January via a link on this webpage.

The department is closed after approximately 1pm on December 20th and on December 23rd. The University is closed December 24th through January 1st. On all other weekdays besides the aforementioned days, prospective undergraduate students and their guests can stop by the ECE Academic Services Center at 1112 Hamerschlag Hall to pick up a self-guided "Undergraduate Walking Tour" pamphlet. This document will direct you to several undergraduate lab spaces located in Hamerschlag Hall. The ECE Academic Services Center is open 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with hours subject to change.

Questions regarding graduate admissions should be directed to Jessica Tomko.

(Please note: On evenings and weekends, the lab spaces highlighted in the self-guided undergraduate walking tour pamphlet are not accessible without a Carnegie Mellon ECE student ID.)
