The Kate Gleason College of Engineering recognizes the importance of providing a variety of advising and support services designed to ensure your academic success. Upon entrance to your program, you will be assigned an academic adviser whose role includes:
Each department/discipline has staff advisers assigned to undergraduate students as follows (see the faculty/staff directory for contact information):
Biomedical Engineering: Elizabeth Ewell
Chemical Engineering: Elizabeth Ewell
Computer Engineering: Ann DiFelice
Electrical Engineering: Denise Dewitt, Jenny LaFlam
Industrial and Systems Engineering: Amy Powell
Mechanical Engineering: Sherill Anderson, Hillary McCormick, Amy Powell
Microelectronic Engineering: Jenny LaFlam
Engineering Exploration: Sherill Anderson, Fredda Bishop, Karen Hirst
Advising Lead: Karen Hirst
Faculty advisors are assigned to each student within their first or second year.
Your adviser has posted office hours each quarter. You may also call or e-mail your adviser to make an appointment to see him/her at a mutually convenient time. See your adviser before registering for courses to be sure you are on the right track. If you experience any problems related to your course work, remember that the best time to see your adviser is before problems get too big so that the two of you can decide on a course of action to solve them while they are more easily manageable.
Both of these individuals will be available to students throughout their undergraduate career. Academic advisors will act as the lead for student advisement, with the understanding that academic advisors and faculty advisors within a college will take a coordinated approach towards the advisement of students.
