Each undergraduate and post-baccalaureate ECE major is also assigned a faculty advisor. The advisor will assist the student in planning his/her degree program, and answer questions concerning academic policies. The advisor cannot waive prerequisites or policies. The student is ultimately responsible for compliance. It is the duty of the faculty advisor to provide timely and accurate advice to his assigned advisees. The advisor should make every effort to be available by appointment throughout the academic year, with particular emphasis on the period when registration begins. If a faculty member will not be available for advising, he should notify the Director of Undergraduate Studies so that appropriate reassignments can be made.

Advisors are assigned at two levels.  A student’s initial advisor is assigned when the student first enrolls in an ECE degree program.  This advisor will help the student negotiate the first two years of the program which are identical for all ECE students, both BSEE and BSCPE. The advisors are assigned to new students before priority registration each fall and spring semester. Until a regular advisor is assigned, the Director of Undergraduate Studies acts as the advisor. When the student is ready to enter the third year of the program, the student will be assigned a new advisor in the student’s area of concentration. This advisor will be able to help the student choose electives and prepare for a career.
