Faculty Advising

Undergraduate students are encouraged to discuss their progress through the program with a faculty advisor. To ensure that all students meet at least once per academic year, freshman and seniors should meet with their faculty advisor during the fall semester, sophomores and juniors during the spring semester.

Academic advising is 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 Thomas Devine – mechanical properties/ ME and NE joint majors

Professor Kevin Healy – 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 2018 walk-in appointment advising times scheduled thus far are as follows:

Advisor Location Hours
Thomas Devine 224 HMMB Monday 2:00-4:00pm
Kevin Healy 370 HMMB Tuesday 2:00-3:30pm
Junqiao Wu 322 HMMB Wednesday 4:00-5:30pm
Ting Xu 381 HMMB Mon 2:00 – 3:00 pm
