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.
