I could not find any detailed spec sheet for this exact laptop, but apparently some Acer Aspire E15 only have an M2 SATA connection, some have the wifi card in an additional mini pcie slot.

You should open your laptop and make sure, there is a mini pcie slot in there. If so, you will need to live without the wifi card, in order to get the connection card to the eGPU in there.

But you should definitely check for the mini pcie slot. I have found this review, which does not show a mini pcie slot, but a M2 SATA slot:

I have found no information, how many pcie lanes connect to the slot, so I can't say anything about performance. But technically the kit should work for connecting an eGPU.
