At nearly 400 graduate students, we represent one of the largest graduate student communities within the faculty of engineering and the University of Alberta as a whole; it is one that is highly diverse. Great opportunities exist in bringing together such a large community.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Students' Association encompasses all the grad students of our fair department, and the duly-elected ECEGSA Executive is its representative body. 

Our mission: represent the student body, and make the ECE department (and world) a better place, one grad student at a time. 

Please contact us, or any of the councilors directly for any suggestions on how we could play a more proactive role to improve your graduate student experience.
