Academic Advising and Professional Development

First Year engineering students are advised in the Center for Student Excellence in 204 Weil Hall. Students are assigned an advisor in their first semester, and will work with that advisor throughout their first academic year. Students who are on track at the end of their first year, will be transitioned to departmental advising.

All Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering students are required to meet with their Academic Advisors at least once each semester. Most students see their advisors more frequently, as they are the best resource for assisting students in understanding college policies and expectations. In the Center for Student Excellence, all of our advisors are also Career Coaches who can provide support and resources for effective professional development. Advisors are available in every department, as well as in Undergraduate Student Affairs in 204 Weil Hall.

The Engineering Undergraduate Student Affairs (USA) provides services for all COE students, not just undecided students. USA advisors manage college level petitions, and can provide Interviewing Officer statements for university level petitions.
