Faculty Advisers

During the fall and spring semesters, a faculty member from each of the College’s University Park majors spends three hours per week in the Engineering Advising Center in 208 Hammond Building at University Park. For the name of the faculty member representing each major and their current semester schedule in the Engineering Advising Center, refer to the list below.

Faculty advisers are available by appointment and for walk-in meetings for general advising, particularly for discussions about their major and careers for graduates. Students are routinely referred, as needed, to the appropriate faculty adviser for information about specific majors.

To request an appointment, go to the Appointment Request System or call 814-863-1033.

Students may also visit any department in the College of Engineering and request a meeting with any member of the departmental faculty to discuss major, minor, and career issues.
