Faculty Advising Representatives

During the fall and spring semesters, faculty advising representatives from each of the College’s University Park majors are available to meet with first- and second-year students exploring engineering majors.

Meeting with a faculty advising representative 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 advising representative are also an important part of the major exploration process. Making an appointment with a faculty advising representative 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.

Note: All times listed are Eastern Time (ET). Please schedule using the direct Starfish calendar link next to a faculty advising representative’s name.

The Engineering Advising Center (EAC) serves as the academic advising resource for students in pre-major status (ENGR) at University Park. Once students have been admitted to a College of Engineering major, they will be assigned to a faculty adviser in that major.
