Academic Counseling

Academic Counseling Sessions

They are focused on four major areas: academic, career, financial, and personal concerns.

Objectives

To assist engineering students with employing the concept of ‘beginning with the end in mind’ – successfully planning for job placement or the continuation of their education after the undergraduate years by carrying out and facilitating the following tasks:

  • Monitoring academic performance
  • Assisting students with the creation and attainment of smart goals
  • Connecting students to useful campus resources
  • Assisting in the enhancement of students’ problem solving abilities
  • Providing opportunities for students to adequately prepare for graduate education
  • Providing a forum in which students have opportunities to share best practices for academic success in the engineering curriculum
