Welcome

The Electrical Engineering Graduate Student Association is a service and social organization at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley.

We assist with new graduate student orientation, organize prelim review sessions, provide peer advising services, and sponsor social events year-round.

We also host a number of events throughout the year like

  • Career advice seminars by our industrial collaborators
  • Visit day for prospective students
  • Social hour for graduate students
  • Graduate students night out

To know more about the events and to contribute to any event, please visit the events page.

Congratulations to Matthew Spencer, recipient of EEGSA’s Someone Special Award for April 2012!

Matt was nominated for his effectiveness and willingness to help as a GSI, in addition to his great sense of humor and positive attitude. Matt’s research focus is circuits, specifically “making computing systems out of alternative device technology.” He seeks to “use tiny mechanical switches to replace CMOS transistors in hopes of demonstrating lower power computers.” Matt has been an active member of the EECS community, currently serving as EEGSA Industrial Liaison and directing the department’s graduate student outreach program. In his free time, he also enjoys singing and doing martial arts.

The EEGSA Someone Special Award recognizes students, staff, and faculty members who bring something special to the Berkeley electrical engineering community. Any member of the EECS community is invited to nominate individuals for the award. For more information, please contact the EEGSA Social Committee (email).

Please join us in congratulating Matt,
