The advisor-student relationship is a cornerstone of undergraduate and graduate engineering education. In the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, we ensure that our students receive the guidance and support they need to achieve their academic and professional goals. Don’t forget to look at our Undergraduate Advising section, and our MSE Graduate Advising Manual or PhD Graduate Advising Manual.

Early during your time with the ECE department, you will be closely matched with an advisor based off mutual research interests. The advisor’s primary goal is to enhance your development as a student, researcher, and later, an industry leader. The advisor will serve as a mentor who knows you well, cares about your academic interests, can help you define your career goals, and is committed to your success at Johns Hopkins and beyond.

All tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible to become advisors for undergraduate and graduate students.
