Professor A.A. Balandin is an Undergraduate Advisor for the Electrical Engineering and
Computer Engineering majors in the College of Engineering, UCR.
Starting from 2004, all EE technical electives (TE) are arranged into four
specialization (or focus) areas. The EE students are encouraged to take
TE from one of these four areas. Information on
TEs and undergraduate
advising for the specific focus area can be found HERE.
Note that, there are currently four EE professors (members of the
who consult the EE students in their corresponding areas of expertise.

area can be found HERE.
Some quote for students considering the area of solid-state DEVICES and CIRCUITS:
"Management continues to be a high-paid specialty for US engineers, but in 2001,
one purely technical specialty surpassed it: solid-state circuits, where typical
levels of pay rose to US $112,000 a year, at least for median base salaries."
