Faculty Advisers

Students in CEE are encouraged to seek mentoring from CEE faculty advisers.

Faculty advisers (and, indeed, all faculty members) hold office hours throughout the school year to help you with course content; advise on courses, career objectives, graduate school, letters of recommendation, and summer internships. 

CEE students should meet with a faculty adviser of their choice at least twice a year for academic advising.  The department hosts Academic Advising Forums each semester to facilitate advising.

The faculty adviser reviews the student's proposed academic schedule, suggests coursework based on the student's interest and offers mentoring for career development.  If a student struggles academically, as evidenced by their GPA, the department will require academic advising prior to enrollment in classes the following semester.
