All registered PMP students will be granted general building access via your UW HuskyCard. Please see our Facilities page for specific building access & information.

Computing Account

Please set up an EE Computing Account before the start of the quarter. While the EE department has migrated many of its systems to use UW NetID authentication, EE accounts are necessary for linux lab or other research computing systems, or to various pages on the EE website.

Degree Information

Please refer to the PMP Curriculum Requirements webpage for degree requirements, subject areas, and course offerings. 


All PMP communication is sent to your UW email account. It is your responsibility to forward your UW email to your personal/work email address if you plan on using a non-UW email address as your primary email.
