Advising for Students in Their Third Year and Beyond

By the time you start your third year, 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 coordinator and undergraduate staff assistant for each College of Engineering 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 their interests and goals.

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