Personalized Advice by Caring Engineering Professionals

Welcome to the Office of Student Success (OSS) — your home for undergraduate academic advising and much more! We provide academic advising for all engineering undergraduates in the following majors:

  • Chemical and Materials Engineering (CME), Civil Engineering (CEE), Computer Engineering (CPE), Electrical Engineering (ELE) and Mechanical Engineering (MEE)
  • Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology (ECT), Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) and Mechanical Engineering Technology (MCT) 
  • Discover Engineering (UEG) and Discover Engineering Technology (UET)

Our advisers have experience in the field as engineers, so we understand what's important for a future engineering career. We help you stay on track with your degree program while crafting a custom set of experiences (co-op/internship, study abroad, ETHOS, research, etc.) to complement your academic coursework. We incorporate our Catholic and Marianist philosophy of inclusiveness and community and value the diversity of our students. 

Advising often goes beyond academics and our goal is to be a trusted adviser — the person our students can feel comfortable coming to about anything.
