Student Advising


Dear Rising Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors:

Phone registration for Rising Seniors starts Monday, April 15; for Rising Juniors Tuesday, April 16 and for Rising Sophomores Wednesday, April 17.

This year you will have a choice of 3 advisors:  Alan West – for Rising Jrs. only (acw7), Scott Banta – all students (sb2373) and Chris Durning – all students (cjd2).  Please meet with one of them (your choice).

We will be conducting 10 minute advising sessions starting Tuesday April 2nd through Friday April 12th at various times that will be posted.  There are sign-up sheets at the main front desk in Room 801.  These meetings will be held in rooms 804 Mudd, 811 Mudd or professors’ offices. 

This advising is *MANDATORY* so, if you cannot come during the designated times, please make an individual appointment by emailing one of the professors, ASAP.  Failure to attend an advising meeting will cause your registration to be HELD until you meet with an advisor.

The advising process will go like this:

1). *Read* the Chemical Engineering section of the SEAS bulletin, and decide as best you can which courses you need to take, in particular for Fall. These are typically the required courses (see p. 82-88 of the current SEAS bulletin) and you will need to choose technical/nontechnical electives. The guidelines for technical electives are given as an attachment to this mailing; you should consider carefully how you want to use your electives, as they can lead to a minor or a specialization in a sub-field of chemical engineering which is a valuable addition to your training. Guidelines for nontechnical electives are available in the SEAS bulletin. To help you with selection of electives we have attached a list of the most frequently taken electives in each category since 2007.

2). Once you have decided what courses you think are appropriate for the Fall *Fill Out* the attached registration sheet, which specifies the program you will register for this Fall.

3). *Print Out* a current DAR (degree audit report) and bring it with you, as this will help us check that you are indeed fulfilling the degree requirements so far.

3). *Show up* to the advising session with the above materials, and we will be set to advise you about your proposed Fall 2013 program, and can discuss any issues you might have about your projected program beyond the Fall.

5). After our meeting, register.
