Ongoing Academic Support and Advising
Learn about scheduling advising appointments, drop-in advising, and group advising sessions at Academics & Advising.
Pre-engineering students can meet with any adviser in Student Academic Services for help with:
- Exploring academic interests
- Developing plans for your major
- Understanding and completing requirements
- Avoiding or overcoming administrative problems
- Developing a sense of purpose in your undergraduate education
The CoE Mentor Program connects students with both peer and alumni mentors. Peer mentors are upper-division engineering students who are ready to answer your questions and talk to you about their experiences studying engineering at the UW. Alumni mentors help current UW engineering students learn from the experiences of College of Engineering graduates who were once in their shoes.
Search the mentor list to find mentors whose interests align with your own. Ask them questions, hear about their experiences, and get some friendly advice!
