All students in the mechanical engineering program are assigned a full-time faculty member as their academic advisor. As a part of the registration process, students must consult their advisors in preparation of their academic programs and prior to registering for classes.
Department faculty members are important resources for students when seeking internships and discussing career options. Faculty members are available to meet with students to discuss professional and career-related issues. Students are encouraged to meet with the department faculty for professional advisement.
