Student resources

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is committed to developing well-rounded students, both in and out of the classroom. ECE students not only participate in engineering-specific events but also in campus- and city-wide activities.

The department has many organizations and societies, as well as student-run activities. Students also have the opportunity to develop professional skills through the Tech/Career Talks held each semester. Beyond the boundaries of the ECE Department, the College of Engineering and university support and encourage a wide range of student intellectual, technical, professional, social, and sporting activities as well as involvement in CMU’s many rich traditions, including Buggy, Booth, the Fence, Kiltie Band, and Student Government.

Destress with ECE

Destress with ECE activities take place every semester. In the past, events have included mental wellness workshops on a range of topics, including stress management and finding happiness. During particularly stressful times of the semester, such as midterms and finals weeks, the department provides snacks and catered meals.
