EECS Student Life
|Diversity||Student Organizations||Graduate Handbook||Housing|
The Department makes a special effort to foster diversity among its graduate students. Women and minority student organizations participate in the recruitment and welcoming of new students, hold discussions on topics of mutual interest, and provide a support network specific to the needs of their group. We also have international students from many countries. More information about diversity in the Department can be found in the department diversity page.
- EEGSA - Electrical Engineering Graduate Student Association
EEGSA is a service and social
organization within the EECS department at U.C. Berkeley. They organize
prelim review sessions, provide peer advising services, and assist with new
student orientation. In an effort to promote communication and camaraderie
within the department, they sponsor social activities such as the weekly coffee
hours. EEGSA also sponsors occasional ice cream socials, wine and cheese
parties, and dances.
- CSGSA - Computer Science Graduate Student Association
CSGSA is a student-run
organization serving the CS graduate student community at Berkeley. The
CSGSA sponsors orientation programs for new students, a number of academic
services and a variety of social events throughout the year.
- WICSE - Women in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Berkeley has a unique resource: WICSE.
All women graduate students are members of the graduate women's
group, founded in 1977. Each week EECS graduate women gather for
lunch in Soda Hall, for informal conversation or interaction with
visiting women. WICSE provides a strong student voice for women
in the EECS Department.
- BGESS - Black Graduate Engineering and Science Students
BGESS was founded in 1987 by a group of African American graduate students
enrolled at U.C. Berkeley. BGESS has dedicated itself to the nurturing of
academic and social support systems for students of African Heritage, whose
contributions to the fields of Graduate Engineering and Physical Sciences have
been historically underrepresented or denied. They provide information about
applying to Cal, historic contributions by Black scientists and engineers,
and the Future Black Faculty Database.
