Advising

The mechanical and civil engineering department offers academic advising that provides individual attention to our students. Our advising goal is to ensure each student’s academic success as well as establish the path to a rewarding career.

Our freshman adviser is Mr. William Baginski. He can help you in all freshman-related matters, including admission requirements, test scores, first year required courses, transfer, etc.

Our adviser for sophomore, junior & senior is Professor Bipin Pai.   He can help you with all your advising matters in civil and mechanical engineering. He is also responsible for all graduation audits.

Advising hours vary throughout the semester. During registration weeks (March & October), students are required to make appointments to see either adviser. Appointment details will be posted here prior to registration period. During non-registration weeks, student visits are always welcome.
