You will be assigned your academic advisor after you arrive on campus. They are usually assigned by major/technical/subplan area.
You can find a list of who advises each major/technical area here.
The first step is to review the graduate manual to understand the degree and course requirements for a specific major area. In addition, here is the list of each EECS course and which major/technical/subplan area it counts towards.
The next step is to talk with your academic advisor when you arrive on campus.
Yes, you can change your major area after the first semester in the program.
To switch your major area, you will need to complete an updated study plan. Have your new academic advisor sign the plan of study. Return the plan of study to the Graduate Program Coordinator.
Students who want to transfer to Computer Vision, Signal and Image Processing and Machine Learning, or Integrated Circuits & VLSI must meet additional requirements to transfer. Speak to the academic advisor about these requirements.

The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) program controls the computer science oriented courses. At this time, CSE will only allow their students to take these courses. There is a high demand for these courses, and they want to control the size of the course and make sure their students can take them.
It's important to remember that you are a ECE student and these courses are not necessary to get your ECE master's degree. There are plenty of other courses for you can take.
CSE now has an online form you can fill out if you are requesting to register for a CSE 400 level course. There is no guarantees you will be allowed to take the course now or the future. Please complete this form to request. CSE 500 level courses become available to non-CSE students usually a month after registration begins each semester.
There are two ways to determine if a course is graduate level.
We encourage student to enroll in 2 courses (minimum of 8 credits) their first semester. This allows students to get used to the academic demands of the program.
If a student must enroll in a third course to make the full time enrollment, we encourage students to take a class that is less demanding to count toward their cognate requirement.
Yes, it is called the Multidisciplinary Design Program (MDP). Click here to learn more about the program and the courses offered.
