Student Advising

Student advising is a crucial component of academic success. Students benefit from advice on course selection and sequencing, receive mentoring from advisors, and are able to identify academic issues early on and find resources to help them succeed.

Each student has a faculty advisor assigned to them, Advising Assignment. Please take the opportunity to meet with your faculty advisor early and as often as needed. Please contact the Aerospace Engineering Department if you have any questions regarding the advising procedures. We want you to succeed in the Aerospace Engineering Program.
