HKN offers free one-on-one peer tutoring. Simply contact a tutor to arrange a time. The tutor’s netid, and the courses for which they are offering tutoring are listed below. If you would like a tutor for a course that is not listed below, please reach out to Steven Kolaczkowski at kolaczk2[at]illinois.edu, and we will be happy to arrange something. You can also check the CARE website for tutoring and extra office hours in non-ECE required classes.
After the tutoring session, please fill out the Tutor Feedback Form. We appreciate your feedback.
HKN offers mock technical interviews targeted for students interviewing with ECE companies (software and hardware). Interviews are available either in an interview room with a whiteboard, or over the phone. You will be given questions that accurately reflect the questions given by the company you will be interviewing with, and, where possible, your interviewer will have received an offer from the company as well.
Dr. Everitt’s Neighborhood is an independent, student-run guide intended to provide all sorts of useful knowledge about life as an ECE student. Our philosophy is that it is important not to simply repeat the department’s published information, but to supplement it by adding students’ perspectives.
Engineers thrive on the fact that there is always more than one way to do something well. Accordingly, some of thoughts and suggestions expressed in this guide, while respectful, are different from the ones you will hear from the advising office. We encourage you to make your own judgment based on advice from several sources, such as this guide, the advising office, professors, professionals, alumni, friends, and upperclassmen.
In addition, various ECE student organizations offer services that give such advice to students. HKN usually offers peer advising services in the middle of each semester around class registration time.
Dr. Everitt’s Neighborhood is an independent, student-run guide intended to provide all sorts of useful knowledge about life as an ECE student.

Ultimately this resource is what you, the fellow ECE student, make of it. It may help you choose courses, research interests, learn more about professors and their personal and professional interests, stay informed on student opinions, etc. Accordingly, this resource lives on the feedback and ideas of the students in ECE. If you can think of other articles or features to include, we want to know, and if you want, you can even help write them.
If you would like to get involved with this guide, please contact Mahir Morshed at mmorshe2[at]illinois.edu.
