Academic Advising

First-year engineering students are advised by the assistant dean for first-year students. After selecting a major, students are assigned to and advised by a faculty member in their major curriculum. In the first two years of a five-year, dual-degree program, students are assigned to advisers through the office of the dean of the school that has academic jurisdiction.

Students are required to consult their advisers at least once each semester prior to registering for the next semester. Students must assume full responsibility for conforming to the academic regulations of the school and for taking specific courses required in the appropriate semester for the chosen curriculum. Students also must be careful to ascertain that they have the proper prerequisites for any course for which they register. Students are encouraged to consult the associate dean for academic affairs, the assistant dean for first-year students, the associate dean for student development, the assistant dean for transfer services, the assistant dean for engineering education, and any other member of the engineering faculty for advice regarding their educational or professional development.
