Prospective Student Visitors

Invitation to Prospective Undergraduate Students and Families

Visit Us!

At the northeast corner of the campus you will find Cory and Soda Halls, homes of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, with campus dormitories right across the street.

Here are some ideas for prospective undergraduates who wish to visit our department:

  • Sign up for a department tour with the students in the HKN honor society.
  • Sit in on a lower-division EECS class. To do so, please search for any classes of interest and access the course webpage. This will show you the days, times, and location of each course. You may then contact the faculty or ugradadmissions@cs.berkeley.edu for permission to attend:
    • EE 16A: Designing Information Devices and Systems I
    • EE 16B: Designing Information Devices and Systems II
    • CS 61A: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
    • CS 61B: Data Structures
    • CS 61C: Great Ideas of Computer Architecture
  • Meet with an Adviser. Please schedule an appointment before visiting to guarantee that we're available and prepared for our meeting. If you don't have an appointment, you are certainly welcome to stop by, but we may be unavailable. 
  • Join a campus tour sponsored by the University's Visitor's Center
  • Visit during Cal Day (in the Spring)
