Departmental Advisers

During fall and spring semesters, a departmental adviser from each of the College's University Park majors spends three hours per week at the Engineering Advising Center (EAC).

Meeting with a departmental adviser can be helpful when you are working on long-term schedule plans (for ROTC, concurrent majors, etc.) or would like to learn whether a specific engineering major might be a good fit for your interests and goals. You can also get more detailed information about career paths, graduate school, and/or medical school from departmental advisers. Please call 814-863-1033 to schedule an appointment with a departmental adviser from the majors listed below.
