Faculty Advisers

During the fall and spring semesters, faculty advisers from each of the College’s University Park majors are available to meet with pre-major engineering students.

Meeting with a faculty adviser can be helpful when you are working on long-term schedule plans (for ROTC, concurrent majors, etc.) or would like to learn more about a specific engineering major might be a good fit for your interests and goals. Discussions and conversations with a faculty adviser are also an important part of the major exploration process. Making an appointment with a faculty adviser is appropriate if you are looking to get more detailed information about in-major electives, concurrent degrees, career paths, graduate school, and/or medical school, and more.

Faculty adviser availability for Spring 2021 will start virtually on Monday, January 25, 2021 (week 2 of the spring semester).
