ME Faculty Advising for Fall 2016

Preparing for the Spring 2017 Semester

Phase I of Course Enrollment will begin October 17th.  Because we are transitioning to a new student system this semester, as an exceptional to our normal procedures, we are not requiring that you see your Faculty Adviser.  However, you still will have opportunities to be advised by a faculty member if you wish.  Mechanical Engineering will provide the following options for you:


Early Drop-In Advising

What: An event where students are able to be advised by faculty, staff, and senior students. An ESS adviser will be there to answer questions about the H/SS requirement and to make sure you are generally on track to graduate.

When: Tuesday, October 11th, 10am-4pm (we will stop taking advisees at about 3:45pm)

Where: 3110 Etcheverry Hall

Individual Advising

Students who are not able to attend Drop-In Advising can still see their assigned Faculty Adviser during their Office Hours starting the week of October the 10th.  

Who: List of ME Faculty Advisor assignments for Fall 2016

Where: Faculty Offices

What to Bring

To ensure that advising time is productive and that we can advise you properly, we cheerfully insist that you bring the following documents with you (you will not be advised without them):

- An unofficial transcript (from CalCentral)

- A copy of the ME curriculum (with your completed courses X'ed out)

- A completed ME Degree Check form

Graduating Seniors

Graduating Seniors and students who plan to graduate in Spring 2017 should make sure to do a Final Degree Check with your ESS Adviser in 230 Bechtel if you have not already done so.
