Engineering Advising

Advisors are here to guide you every step of the way.  As an engineering student at VSU, your faculty advisor will play a key role in helping you to determine your area of focus, choosing the best courses each semester to match this focus, and even selecting the right career path for your future.

In this section, you’ll learn when you must meet with your advisor, more details about ways your advisor can assist you, as well as a list of the advisors for computer engineering and manufacturing engineering.

You will not be allowed to register until you meet with your advisor, so it is critical that you seek your advisor well before registration. Your advisor is an important resource to you because s\he will help you to develop and achieve your educational goals by assisting you with:

  • understanding your major and general education requirements as outlined on your graduation worksheet
  • scheduling courses each semester
  • recommending course sequences within your major and informing you when courses are offered
  • researching internship and undergraduate research opportunities
  • identifying career and professional opportunities within your major
  • referring you to campus resources that may benefit you
  • interpreting academic policies and regulations
  • verifying your eligibility for graduation

As you can see, your faculty adviser will play a critical role in making your undergraduate experience go smoothly. For contact information of your adviser, such as e-mail address or phone number, please refer to the Faculty Listing.
