Meet the ECE Ambassadors

Our student ambassadors enjoy discussing ECE with students who are considering electrical or computer engineering at Virginia Tech. You can meet them on a tour of the department, or email them if you have questions.

Maroon shirts are worn by our student ambassadors when they give tours of the electrical and computer engineering department. This way, interested students and families can easily identify their tour guides.
