Advising for In-Major Students

Upon being admitted to a major in the College of Engineering, you will be assigned a faculty adviser in your major. Once the assignment is made, contact information can be found in LionPATH

Please see the table below for the name of the faculty member representing each major. Meeting with a faculty adviser can be especially helpful when a student is working on long-term scheduling plans (for ROTC, a semester study abroad, concurrent majors, etc.) or would like to learn whether a specific engineering major might be a good fit for his/her interests and goals.

If you don’t know the name of your adviser, please contact your department’s support staff.
