Faculty Advising

Undergraduate students are encouraged to discuss their progress through the program with a faculty advisor.

Effective Fall 2016, academic advising will be available from four official departmental advisors listed here, along with their areas of academic advice specialization (though each is available to all the students):

Professor Daryl Chrzan – structural materials/ ME and NE joint majors

Professor Phil Messersmith – soft and biomaterials/ BioE joint majors

Professor Junqiao Wu – electronic materials / EECS joint majors

Professor Ting Xu – Materials Chemistry /Chem E joint majors

These professors have each set aside hours in the semester for walk-in advising meetings. In addition, these professors will set aside time during the two weeks before the start of registration to enable additional walk-in advice. Of course, each of these professors can be contacted during their normal office hours, and by appointment for advice at other times during the semester.

Fall 2016 walk-in appointment advising times scheduled thus far are as follows:
