Undergraduate Advising and Course Registration

Undergraduate Student Academic Advising

Academic Advising students on progress toward satisfying degree requirements is a responsibility shared among the faculty. Your academic advisor is determined by your last name except graduating seniors and incoming students where they are advised by the department head. Please review the advising list each semester as it will be updated with changes in enrollment and faculty assignments. An advising schedule will be published on this site prior to the time of advising along with detailed instructions.

Review of progress is part of the one-on-one advising session between the student and faculty advisor. This process is facilitated by the requirement for students to perform, print, and submit a current CAPP to their advisor prior to being advised. In this way the faculty advisor can confirm what classes have been taken and which are next to take. In addition to course planning and guidance, faculty advisers are able to provide guidance on career planning, if such is sought by the students. Faculty members are also available to meet with students by appointment throughout the academic year.

Undergraduate Student Career Advising

Opportunities for formal career guidance are incorporated within the Civil Engineering curriculum. The course CE 1001, Introduction to Civil Engineering, provides an overview of the civil engineering profession, presentations on the different technical specialty areas, and instruction on different technical and non-technical skills (e.g., productivity software skills) that will be essential to students during their coursework and after graduation. The capstone design course, CE 4903, Civil Engineering Comprehensive, provides information on professional ethics and on interfacing with other professionals and trades, e.g. contractors, electrical and mechanical engineers, and suppliers, in the course of a large civil engineering project. The preparation of effective documents related to this is covered in GE 3513, Technical Writing, which each term sets aside at least one section exclusively for civil engineering majors.

Other opportunities for career guidance are provided through the activities of the various student organizations affiliated with the department. Most prominent is the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Student Chapter which meets twice a month and regularly hosts professionals from consulting, government, and industry to speak of careers, technical advances, and experiences. The ASCE Student Chapter is particularly active and has been cited as best chapter in the region a number of times. Similarly, the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) student chapter maintains a good level of activity and generally meets once per month with a practicing engineer as a featured speaker at most of these meetings.
