Full-time faculty members in the Electrical Engineering program advise students admitted to the program. At the beginning of their first semester of the program, the students are assigned to various faculty members. The assignment is random and based on balancing the load among faculty members. This assignment lasts throughout the student’s academic program to provide continuity and consistent advising for the student.
Each semester during periods of pre-registration or registration, the student is required to meet with his advisor to review his progress and develop a schedule of courses to be taken during the next semester. Before each semester pre-registration period, each student is reminded, by mail, of advising schedules.
During the advising appointment, the student and advisor use the student’s file, transcript, a variety of reports available to faculty through an online information system, departmental students' records, etc. to develop a schedule of classes. This process provides the best progress toward meeting the requirements in all areas, and assures that all prerequisite and other preliminary restrictions have been satisfied. Thereafter, the student registers for his courses through the College web-site.
