What is EA Xchange?

EA Xchange is our member-only forum where you can chat online with like-minded engineers from our community. Each month we have over 7,600 active users including 1,500 graduate members! You can ask for advice, bounce ideas for feedback or connect with other engineers on a specific area of interest.

Using EA Xchange is simple. Just login with your EA ID and password and accept the T&Cs. You can then update your profile and join in on one of the many communities or live threads.

Joining the Ask Me Anything session
