Each semester students meet with a professional advisor, who is located within the school office, as well as a faculty advisor. The professional advisor provides assistance planning courses and tracking student progress toward graduation. The faculty advisor provides guidance on courses, while also answering questions about career pursuits, research, graduate school, and other topics.

To offer hands-on learning, the School of Engineering and Computational Sciences partners with local engineering firms to provide students with a wide variety of internship opportunities. Internship positions are an invaluable opportunity introducing students to field-specific environments where they can apply skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-world situations. Through internships, students can:
• Investigate career interests and clarify career goals
• Learn directly from experienced professionals
• Increase and further develop specific skills and knowledge related to their career field
• Develop professional contacts
• Increase their chances of employment upon graduation

Internships are not required, but can be used to fulfill Technical Elective credits. The positions may be paid, moreover, they are a unique opportunity to work under both academic and professional mentors simultaneously, thereby enriching the learning process and easing the transition from classroom to boardroom.

There are also several university-wide student support programs available to engineering students, including the Center for Academic Support and Advising Services, the Office of Disability Academic Support, the Center for Multicultural Engagement (for international students), Career Center, and the Bruckner Learning Center (which offers tutoring for select courses, CLEP exams, and institutional challenge exams).

A Senior Mentoring program has been instituted where a Senior who is graduating, is paired up with multiple freshman and provides
proper mentor-ship of freshmen engineering and computer science students which results in greater student success and program retention. It is our hope that this program and the ensuing relationships will give incoming freshmen a strong foundation for the educational portion of their careers. As an added benefit, we believe that you will personally grow in compassion and leadership. We believe this endeavor will cultivate an environment of student success, from freshman through senior years.
