Academic Advising in the College of Engineering

Academic Advising

Each freshman is assigned an academic advisor who is a full-time faculty member in the department of your chosen major. It is incumbent upon you to get to know your academic advisor as they are able to help you:

  • Adjust to university life or point you in the right direction for answers
  • Learn about the engineering profession in order to make a more-informed choice of a major field of study
  • Select minors and concentrations
  • Consider career choices, internships, post-graduation employment and graduate school
  • Secure referrals, when appropriate

Perhaps most importantly, your academic advisor will help ensure proper course selection and your advancement in the academic program. At pre-registration time each semester, your advisor will provide you with an up-to-date summary of the courses you have taken and those you are still required to take to obtain the target degree.
