Civil & environmental engineering class registration instructions

CEE will hold two Advising Forums one on:

  • Thursday, October 17th, 12 noon - 1 pm, 7th Floor Davis Hall
  • Friday, October 18th, 12 noon- 1 pm, 7th Floor Davis Hall

All CEE students are encouraged to attend. All FROSH are required to attend.  Faculty and upper division students will be available to provide guidance and advising. 

We hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to connect with faculty; you'll hear about their experiences and ask their advice. Faculty advising is primarily intended for discussion of courses, graduate school, and industry questions. Questions about policy and/or specific degree requirements should continue to be directed to staff advisers.  

Please bring:

  • A copy of your unofficial transcript from Cal Central
  • Degree Worksheet, completed
  • An enrollment form, if your GPA is below a 2.6

EECS class registration instructions

Faculty Advising will occur Monday, October 14 – Friday, October 25 for all students declared in the EECS or L&S CS majors. **This email contains important information you need to know for the Spring 2020 enrollment cycle**

Students are not required to attend faculty advising. However, you MUST access the web app and opt out. This will allow us to accommodate all students.

Important Dates:

Now through Wednesday 10/9 @ 9:59am: Students who have attended Faculty Advising before, should access the web app to see their advising session. They will have the option to keep their adviser from last semester, reset their preference to “blank”, or opt out of participating via the Faculty Advising web app.

  • If you wish to keep your adviser, select the faculty’s name and click “Save”.  If you want to change your adviser, select "(blank)" and click "Save". 
  • If you choose to select a new adviser, you will be able to do so beginning Wednesday 10/9 @ 10am.
  • Please note that once the system officially opens on Wednesday 10/9 @ 10am, you will not have the option to opt out or make any other changes.

Wednesday 10/9 @ 10am: Sign-ups for all students will occur on a first-come, first-served basis on the Faculty Advising web app. All students must access the web app, even if just to opt out. 

  • IMPORTANT: Students are responsible for selecting an advising time that does not conflict with their schedule. Please make your selections wisely.

We hope you’re excited about this opportunity to connect with faculty and hear about their experiences and advice. Faculty Advising is primarily intended for discussion of course, graduate school, and industry questions. Although no longer required, you are encouraged to attend Faculty Advising, as it is an important opportunity to connect with faculty. Questions about policy and/or specific degree requirements should continue to be directed to staff advisers.  

What to Bring to Faculty Advising

I am graduating this semester. Do I need advising?
Graduating students are welcome to participate, but not required. L&S CS graduating students, should meet with the CS Major Advisers to confirm they have successfully completed their degree. EECS students should also meet with their ESS Adviser.

For more information on faculty advising see our FAQ or email faculty-advising@eecs.berkeley.edu.

IEOR class registration

Students in IEOR are encouraged to seek mentorship from our exceptional IEOR faculty. Faculty advisers (and, indeed, all faculty members) hold office hours throughout the school year to help students with course content; to advise on courses, ask about career aspirations, and also graduate school; to mentor undergraduate student researchers, and to write letters of recommendation as appropriate.  

IEOR students should meet with the faculty advisor assigned at least twice a year for academic advising. The faculty advisor reviews the student's proposed academic schedule, suggests coursework based on the student's interest and offers to mentor for career development. If a student struggles academically, as evidenced by their GPA, faculty advising will be mandatory (for students with GPA below 2.0) prior to enrollment in classes for Spring 2020. 

Undergraduate faculty advising for IEOR majors will begin in October.

Please consult the Faculty Advising FAQ which you can find here for information on when faculty advising will begin, who is your faculty adviser, how to meet with your adviser and what to bring with you to your faculty advising appointment.

Materials science & engineering class registration instructions

Academic advising will be 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

Students are required to meet with a faculty member to discuss their academic career at least once per academic year.  Be sure to bring a copy of your current transcript, so that your advisor can assess your progress.

While Freshman and Seniors are required to meet with a faculty member during the fall semester, and Sophomores and Juniors during the spring semester, you are welcome to meet with your adviser every semester.

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. You can see their walk-in times here. 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.

Mechanical engineering class registration instructions

Students in ME are encouraged to seek mentoring from ME faulty advisers. Faculty advisers hold office hours throughout the school year to help students with course content; to advise on courses, career objectives and graduate school; to mentor student researchers; and to write letters of recommendation as appropriate.  

All ME Students have a list of faculty advisors which can be found on the mechanical engineering website.

Nuclear Engineering class registration instructions

Nuclear Engineering students are required by their department to see your Faculty Adviser before your Phase I enrollment date to discuss  your  Spring 20 course plans.  If you neglect to see your adviser during this time,  your SP20 enrollment will be blocked.  Please note students with an GPA below 3.0 have an Faculty Adviser enrollment hold.  This hold will be removed once you have seen your adviser and followed the instructions below.  You should have received an email from Kirsten with the name of your faculty adviser and their contact information. If you  did not receive that email please contact Kirsten.

Once you see your adviser, please email a copy of your signed enrollment form to Kirsten so that she can release the enrollment block.  A picture of the form is perfectly acceptable.  

To ensure that advising time is productive and so that you can be advised properly, please bring the following items:

  1. A copy of your transcript from CalCentral (you can also bring your laptop with this information)
  2. A completed degree worksheet 
  3. A completed, printed enrollment form

Undeclared class registration instructions

Engineering Undeclared students in their third or fourth semester are required to meet with a faculty adviser in their intended major to review their planned schedule for the upcoming semester. Third and fourth semester students currently have an enrollment hold and will need to meet with a faculty adviser before this hold can be removed by their ESS Adviser .  Please see the information below about where and how you can meet with a faculty adviser in your  intended major.

To prepare for your meeting with the faculty adviser be sure to:

Once you have the class enrollment form signed by a faculty adviser you can either email your the form to your Adviser, Joey Wong or bring the signed form in during an appointment with Joey. Joey can then release the enrollment hold.

If you are ready, you can also declare your major now too.

HOW TO MEET WITH A FACULTY ADVISER:

Bioengineering

Engineering Undeclared students intending to declare Bioengineering can see Professor Terry Johnson during his drop-in hours. For appointments with Professor Johnson, please sign up for one of the “Faculty Advising Slots” (note students will need to be signed into their Berkeley account).  Professor Johnson is in 418 HMMB and can be reached at tdj@berkeley.edu
