Still have questions?

We have answers. Contact an ECE advisor. If you would like to talk to a student or faculty member, we can help you make that connection.

Women in ECE

Engineer Your Life has information about women in electrical and computer engineering. If you're a young woman considering the study of EE or CPE, you might be interested in reading a profile of NASA engineer Ayanna Howard.

Find out about Tara Teich, who is currently working on Star Wars video games for LucasArts, Shaundra Daily, an EE who is developing emotion-reading software at MIT's Media Lab, and Paige Kassalen, the VT ECE alumna who is working on the worlds first solar-powered flight.
