Join ECE Virtually
October 26-27, 2020
Following this year’s University Open House, Electrical and Computer Engineering invites you to join us for two days of engaging information sessions, hear from alumni and corporate industry leaders on your career opportunities, get a glimpse at some of the exciting projects researchers are developing, and talk with students and faculty about their experiences in the department.
Take a self-guided visit around Engineering Building II, visiting areas of highlight, hearing from students, and getting a feel for life in ECE. You can even take a moment to wander around the building, exploring via 3D scans of the building–even don a VR headset or Google Cardboard for a fully immersive experience, just like if you were here.
Schedule of Sessions
All of the sessions for this Virtual ECE Open House will be held on the virtual Open House platform, allowing for a dynamic and interactive experience. In case a session doesn’t fit in your schedule of the day, recordings of sessions will be made available after-the-fact on this page.

Match wits with a developed artificial intelligence (AI) and compare notes with how you interpret information, and how an AI is developed to mimic you.
6:00 p.m. Corporate Careers Panel
Choosing what you’ll study in university is more than just a few years of classes, it’s about what you’ll do with your future. Regardless of your engineering discipline of choice, join amazing alumni leaders from Boeing, Cisco, Cree, and IBM to learn how your experiences at NC State prepare you for a successful industry career, and get tips on how to get an early head start on your future.
Meet an Advisor
Drop-in during an advising window with the ECE Engineering First Year Advisor for questions and to learn about your journey as a student in ECE at NC State.

Normally at Open House, you’d be able to walk around and see what student organizations, labs, and Senior Design capstone students are doing. Instead, they’ve all recorded what they’re up to.

Water Stress Detection in Plants
Underwater Robotic ClubThe Underwater Robotics Club at NCSU, founded in 2004, is a student-run organization that designs and builds autonomous submersible robots to participate in the annual RoboSub Competition. The event tasks teams from around the world to develop robots to complete complex tasks underwater.
Together the team works outside of the classroom to improve each other's technical skills and to spread the passion of robotics to the community. The club takes our robot, Seawolf, to outreach events such as teaching elementary school students how they can get involved in robotics. The Underwater Robotics Club is student-run and always welcomes new members from any major.
