Our student ambassadors enjoy discussing ECE with students who are considering electrical or computer engineering at Virginia Tech. You can meet them on a tour of the department, or email them if you have questions.
Get the perspective of former students: Why did they study ECE, how did design projects contribute to their experience, what made them choose Virginia Tech, and more.
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.
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.
