Academics & Advising


The advisors in the Office of Student Affairs are here to provide you with assistance with your transition into the College of Engineering and ultimately to provide the support you need to succeed in engineering. Our staff will work with you to help you find the college-wide and university wide resources to make your life easier; help you identify where to get answers to questions; advise on typical freshman courses; and provide the necessary requirements and processes for an on-campus transfer. Each department also has an exceptional academic advising staff to ensure you take the correct undergraduate courses in Chemical, Civil, Computer Systems, Electrical, Industrial, or Mechanical Engineering. We look forward to getting to know and working with you to make your career at the College of Engineering a very rewarding one.
