Mentoring Overview

The mentoring phase of the EECS mentoring program is continuous and lasts as long as the mentor and student want to maintain the relationship. However, at the end of the first year of the mentoring relationship, the student and mentor are asked to submit a satisfaction survey to the EECS mentoring board. The board willreview the student-mentor relationship and consider re-matching if that relationship has not met expectations.

The success of the mentoring phase is highly dependent on the relationship between the student and mentor. Face-to-face mentoring meetings and joint participation of the student and mentor in appropriate social or professional events strengthen this relationship. Additionally, it is critical to the success of the mentoring process that the student asks questions and shares professional interests and goals.

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research in fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
