What are the date and hours for advising? Do I need an appointment?

Advising will take place during a three-week period. For the spring semester advising begins in late October, for the fall semester in late March. Advising hours are from 8:30-2:00pm Monday through Friday in 3006 Engineering Building II Hall. We do our best to keep these hours, but sometimes we may need to be flexible. No appointment is necessary. Registration and Records Calendars

How do I choose senior elective courses?

You must choose senior elective courses to satisfy general breadth and depth requirements. You may choose these courses to demonstrate to future employers that you have acquired "skills" in specific technological areas. You can find a list of senior elective recommendations for seven such areas on the ECE Undergraduate Advising page.

How do I apply for a second major?

Applying for a second major in EE or CPE if you are already in the ECE Department is easy. Just go to 118 Page Hall and ask for the second major to be added. If you want to apply for a second major in another department, go to that department and ask what their procedure is to apply for a second major.

If I want to take a class at another university, how can I find out if it transfers?

Go to the Transfer Course Equivalencies page will allow you to step through a process of matching courses at another institution with NC State course numbers. You will need to choose the institution where you plan to take the course, the department at that institution that teaches the course, and the course number. Print out the page showing that the class you want to take will transfer. If you don't see your course listed, check with Michelle Fisher in 120 Page Hall. After verifying the course will transfer, fill out a course transfer form. You can pick one up from 3006 Engineering Building II or 120 Page Hall. The NC State Transfer Course Equivalencies page has other tools that may be of assistance to you.
