Student resources

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

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 search semester. Beyond the boundaries of the ECE department, the College of Engineering and the University also 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.



De-stress with ECE

De-stress 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. Students are also encouraged to visit wellness spaces in ECE department lounges. These spaces are available day and night, and equipped with coloring books, games, snacks, and blank stationary so students can write encouraging notes to each other and their families.

Students will receive an email with De-stress with ECE information every semester.
