Join the ECEE Student Ambassador Program
The ECEE Volunteer Student Ambassador Program was established in 2014 as an opportunity for student volunteers to assist advising by interacting with new, continuing, and prospective students at ASU.
Each semester the ECEE Advising Team is responsible for organizing, hosting, and participating in events focused on recruiting and retaining quality students in Electrical Engineering. As part of this effort, we believe it is important for new, continuing, and prospective students to hear about the ASU experience from their fellow students! Our ECEE Student Ambassadors join us in meeting these students and providing a peer to peer conversation about what it means to attend a major university and encouraging studying at ASU.
The program provides our Student Ambassadors an opportunity to get involved in activities outside of the usual classroom setting and achieve the recognition that comes with community service. It also creates a vehicle for newly enrolled students to interact with existing and successful students in a friendly, casual environment.
The ECEE undergraduate program engages the Student Ambassadors directly in developing feedback about the program and seeking suggestions for improvement. Specifically, the ambassadors review the EE program educational outcomes each year with the EE program chair and the director of the school. Sound interesting? We encourage you to apply and join your peers in this exciting opportunity!

Meet your student ambassadors
- Attend office hours to both get help on difficult subjects/problems and to learn from the professors what their given fields are like
- Search for or form study groups, especially in freshmen/sophomore years. They are an easy way to form friendships and gain assistance in classes
My biggest advice to any students at ASU is to take advantage of the abundant resources available to you in pursuing whatever interests you have. Many professors have an open-door policy and love to talk about what they work on beyond the scope of the classwork if you show interest, which can sometimes even turn into a paid research position working on similar projects with that faculty member.
Don’t be afraid to go to others for help when you need it, whether it be your professors or your classmates. Your professors do want you to succeed, so take advantage of office hours or talk to them after class if you ever have questions. Your classmates can also be a great resource.
Alexander came to Arizona State University in August 2018. The innovative nature of the university along with the opportunity to be a part of the prestigious honors college and engineering school is why Alexander choose ASU. A graduate of Desert Ridge High School in Mesa, AZ, Alexander selected his major because of his passion for digital electronics and automation. He is not only an ambassador for the ECEE but is also an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics Lab in the School of Earth and Space Exploration under Dr. Hilairy Hartnett. His goal is to be a 4+1 student in the near future.
Keep the main thing the main thing. Too often we find ourselves distracted from what we really want, and what really matters. Therefore, it is important to set short and long term goals, and to occasionally remind ourselves of these goals, in order to remain focused and on the path to success.
My advice to incoming students is to always start labs and homework as soon as you are given the assignment, and to work on assignments a little each day, not all at once.
Advice: Make friends and help each other study! It’s a great way to reinforce the topics in your own mind as well as get help with topics you’re not so sure about.
