CE Academic Advising

Version 14
Visibility: Open to anyone

    Advising policy

    All computer engineering students see their advisor quarterly to discuss academic and career plans and progress. CE students must receive their advisors' clearance before registering; the online registration system enforces this. Beat the registration rush by contacting your advisor early in the quarter.

    Remember that you can schedule your advising appointment before you receive your quarterly registration notice from the Registrar, so do not wait until the last week!

    Starting in week 7 sign-up sheets with available advising slots are normally posted on your advisor's office door. Please sign up for one of these slots; signing up early will give you a wider choice of times. Some advisors will notify you of other appointment procedures (e.g., Outlook) or walk-in advising hours.

    Two-degree Tracks

    Two-degree tracks exist for CE in combination with EE and with SE. These tracks are laid out for 5 years, but students have accelerated the course sequence and finished in one or two quarters beyond 4 years. Please see your advisor or program director (Dr. Durant) for more information.
