During your undergraduate career, faculty advisors can be a valuable resource. Faculty advisors can provide insight about additional avenues of interest (research, industry, academia) and advice about course work, depth sequences, and other academic issues. Also, your advisors can share their own experiences about electrical engineering and provide a new perspective of industry. In addition, faculty can get to know you as a student, and your relationship may lead to limitless possibilities, including recommendations for graduate school, job opportunities, and research experiences.
