Office of Student Success

Welcome to the School of Engineering Office of Student Success (OSS)!

In 2016, as a result of our strategic plan, the School of Engineering opened an Office of Student Success (OSS) staffed by engineering professionals who advise all first-year students throughout the year and second-year students through the end of their first semester.

The OSS serves as an information hub for students to locate academic information, seek advising by appointment or walk-in and receive referrals to campus resources such as tutoring, career counseling and research opportunities. OSS advisers help students stay on track with their degree programs while crafting a custom set of experiences (co-op, study abroad, ETHOS, etc.) to complement their academic coursework.

The OSS staff coordinates Enrichment Workshops (EGR 100) offered in the fall and spring semesters. These workshops are required of all first-year students and are facilitated by upperclass engineering students. They work in small groups to build community and ensure that students master the concepts of calculus, physics and chemistry. Students not only learn to work collaboratively but also gain access to the wisdom of upperclass students.

The OSS-led First-Year Experience (EGR 102) seminar is offered in the fall semester for all incoming engineering and engineering technology students. The seminar is an introduction to engineering faculty, facilities and curriculum,, as well as an exploration of career options in all engineering disciplines, which helps students to maximize their career and educational opportunities.

After the third semester, each undergraduate is assigned an academic adviser, a faculty member who provides academic assistance and individualized attention. The adviser's role is to help the student evaluate and realize educational and career goals.
