Advising

Mike Taylor works with a student


Undergraduate Advising

Undergraduate first-year students are advised by the Tickle College of Engineering Advising Services.

Sophomores through seniors are assigned a professional advisor and faculty mentor in EECS. Students will need to meet with their professional advisor once a year to plan their schedule and get cleared for course registration. Faculty mentors provide guidance and advice on career and employment opportunities, graduate school, and EECS elective courses.
