Research and Teaching Opportunities for Undergraduates

Undergraduate Teaching Fellow

Each semester the ECE Department hires some of its finest students in high academic standing (3.3 GPA and higher) to serve as Undergraduate Teaching Fellows (UTFs) to lead labs and/or discussion sessions for many of its 100 and 200 level ENEE courses. Some of these courses include: ENEE 140: Introduction to Programming Concepts for Engineers, ENEE 150: Intermediate Programming Concepts for Engineers, ENEE 205: Electric Circuits, ENEE 244: Digital Logical Design. Students interested in participating in this program are asked to apply in the semester in which they would like to teach. They are then hired and assigned to work with a professor. A full UTF position requires 12 hours of work per week; a half position requires 6 hours per week. In addition to leading labs and/or discussion sections, UTFs are expected to hold office hours and grade homework and lab experiments as applicable.
