ACG Web/Database Applications

Departmental | Faculty/Research | Students | Building/Administration

As part of its mission, the Engineering Administrative Computing Group designs, develops, and maintains departmental web/database applications that serve staff, faculty, and students in EECS and other units of the College of Engineering. This page provides a brief summary of our systems.

We also share data from our applications, for integration into external systems.

Departmental

My EECS Info
Provides access to a variety of information for members of the EECS community (faculty, graduate students, staff, researchers). Information includes faculty contact info, assistants, office hours, research areas, centers/labs, research projects, faculty committees, graduate students, industrial contacts, courses, publications, technical reports, office/desk assignments. Allows edits to most existing data that is linked to the user. Provides links for faculty to the graduate admissions, faculty recruitment, and grad student review systems, plus any other applications that a specific faculty member has access to.

Faculty/Research

Faculty Directory
Stores public directory information on EECS faculty, including contact info, brief biography, office hours, assistants, teaching schedule, research areas, and centers/labs. The data is the source for several sections of the EECS website, including lists of regular, emeritus, new, and visiting faculty, and the departmental faculty homepages. Updates to most data can be made via My EECS Info. This data, as well as EECS faculty committees and research areas (below), feeds departmental mailing lists via direct database queries.
Faculty Administration
Stores restricted administrative information on EECS faculty: committees, administrative positions, leaves. The faculty committees and administrative officers EECS web page comes from this data.
Faculty Awards
Tracks awards that EECS faculty have received and is used to generate the faculty awards pages on the EECS web site.
Research Areas/Centers
Stores information on EECS faculty research: areas and centers/labs. Unlike the Faculty Directory application, this app allows edits to the research data itself (as well as its relationship to specific faculty members). The data is the source of the Research Areas and Centers and Labs sections of the EECS website. Updates to most data can be made via My EECS Info.
Research Projects
Stores information on research projects. The data is the source of the Research Projects section of the EECS website. Updates to some data can be made via My EECS Info. (Research project data tends to be out of date.)
Publications
Tracks EECS technical reports, faculty publications, and departmental dissertations. For technical reports, the publication itself is stored as a PDF file. The data is the source of several sections of the EECS website: Technical Reports, Dissertations, and Patents, as well as publication info on faculty homepages. Updates to some data can be made via My EECS Info.
Industrial Relations
Stores information on companies, donors, gifts, funds, memberships, events, and other matters related to the EECS External Relations Group (XRG). This application is used by staff to track contacts with important people, and to maintain detailed notes on companies and other donors. As of 2018, staff will begin using this system to track alumni contacts as well. Updates to some data (e.g., faculty contacts with companies) can be made via My EECS Info.
Heaven Points
Stores information on class schedules and faculty teaching loads. The data is the source of current and future class schedules on the EECS website.
Faculty recruiting review
Loads data from the Campus faculty recruiting system (APRecruit) and provides a streamlined interface for the faculty and staff who review the many applications for EECS positions.
Engineering academic personnel (College-wide)
Provides an overall view of a faculty member's career and progress at UCB, with separate interfaces for Dean's Office and departmental academic personnel staff.
Engineering Faculty Ballots
A simple system for managing faculty voting on endowed chairs and Engineering-wide academic proposals.
EECS Ballots
A simple system for managing faculty voting on academic appointments and advancements within EECS.
CoE Faculty Committees
Tracks College faculty committees and their membership by academic year.

Students

Graduate Admissions Review and Reporting
This application is used by all departments in the College of Engineering as well as the Fung Institute. It handles review, financial support planning, and long-term reporting for applications to our graduate programs. Most of the application data is downloaded from the campus Slate admissions system during the application cycle each fall. This application is used by staff to track applicants throughout the admission process. There are separate modules that are used by faculty to review applicants and assist with admission decisions, to plan financial support, and to track visit day appointments.
Continuing Graduate Student
This application is used by almost all departments in the College of Engineering, as well as the Psychology department and Neuroscience program. It stores information on current graduate students. It is used by staff to track all academic progress towards degree and to run reports both for tracking current students and for gathering long-term statistics. Information from this system is provided in a useful form to populate faculty biobib reports. There is a separate application that is used by students and faculty for graduate student reviews.
Exit Survey
Provides an online survey filled out by EECS graduate students upon program completion, and reports summarizing the results for staff.
Academic Student Employee (ASE)
This application is used by all departments in the College of Engineering, as well as the Jacobs Institute and the Psychology department. Statistics also uses it for some cross-listed courses. It handles online applications for Graduate Student Instructor (GSI), Reader, and Tutor positions and is used by staff and faculty to review applications and make position assignments. It also includes a component to track all classes taught each semester via campus data so staff can indicate which classes need student employees. Data from this application is shared in real-time with ERSO/CSS for the HR component of GSI hiring.
Undergraduate Student
This application is used by staff in the College of Engineering Student Affairs office as well as by all departments in the College. Tracks academic and degree progress for College of Engineering undergraduates. As of 2018, data from this system is shared with ETS for the learning analytics system that they are piloting for Engineering.
L&S CS Undergraduate Student
Stores information on Letters & Sciences (L&S) Computer Science undergraduate students, and is used to manage scheduling for undergraduate advising sessions. There is also an application used by undergrad students to apply for admission into the major.
Undergraduate Faculty Advising
This application is used by EECS to manage undergraduate faculty advising. There are separate applications that are used by faculty to update their advising info and preferences each semester and by students to choose advisers and sign-up for advising sessions.
Student Awards
This application is used by EECS, ME, and the Blum Center. It handles nominations (or applications) for student awards and fellowships managed by the department. Allows online faculty review of the applications.
CAEE Scholarship
Provides an application and review system for scholarships administered by the Center for Access to Engineering Excellence.
CAEE Visitors
Provides a registration and reporting system for students using services at or provided by the Center for Access to Engineering Excellence.
CalSO Orientation

Provides a specialized interface and glue to use the YouCanBookMe service for students to schedule appointments with staff advisors, ensuring that they get the correct advisor for their major.
Card Key Access
Application for assigning card key access to physical spaces within EECS. Access groups can be designated using criteria such as course enrollment and class standing.
DARE: Diversifying Access to Research in Engineering
DARE is a UC Berkeley program created to match undergraduate students with research opportunities in EECS and to promote diversity. The application assists students in finding long lasting research opportunities that also fit their interests and abilities.
