The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, College of Engineering at UC Berkeley, is committed to a diverse student body. The EECS faculty and students collaborate on a range of programs, from undergraduate and graduate outreach to academic support and pre-professional advancement. Active contact with diverse EECS alumni and strong student organizations greatly strengthen our program. Dr. Sheila Humphreys, EECS Director of Diversity, holds a half-time staff position supporting EECS diversity programs. She works closely with staff in the EECS Center for Student Affairs (CSA).

Graduate Pipeline Programs
EECS undergraduates may participate in the Semiconductor Research Corporation Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (SRC-URO), piloted in Spring 2006 (then called the Intel Undergraduate Research Program). SRC-URO matches undergraduates with EECS faculty mentors for summer or academic year research.
(Formerly SUPERB-CSIS.) Since 1990, EECS has invited a diverse group of undergraduates to spend 8 weeks on campus conducting research with supervision by EECS faculty and graduate students. Eight former SUPERB students have earned Ph.D. degrees. SUPERB is supported by the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates(REU) Program.
EECS works closely with the NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) Program, called Berkeley Edge. Berkeley Edge invites a group of traditionally underrepresented prospective students in STEM fields to the campus for a three day conference each fall.
UC Leads is a two-year program designed to identify educationally or economically disadvantaged UC undergraduates in mathematics, engineering, or science who show promise of succeeding in doctoral degree programs. The program provides students with educational experiences that prepare them to assume positions of leadership in industry, government, public service, and academia.
The McNair Scholars Program prepares selected UC Berkeley undergraduates for graduate study at the doctoral level. Twenty to thirty McNair Scholars are selected each year to participate in both academic and summer activities. The McNair Scholars Program aims to increase numbers of groups underrepresented in doctoral programs.
Graduate women's group in EECS, meets each Friday at Noon.
Award-winning student group founded in 1987, currently headed by Mark McKelvin.
LAGSES provides a cohesive group for incoming and continuing Latino graduate students.
