Advising Goals

To provide advice on curriculum, internships, and career planning/objectives so students may make the most informed decisions possible for their future.

Advising Policy

After the initial registration as a new freshaman or transfer student by a Department representative, the student is assigned an advisor for his/her remaining years in Chemical Engineering according to the first initial of the student's last name. Advising information is taken into the classroom as part of Freshman Seminar. Advising every semester is required for a 4yr guarantee student, and we request all students meet with their advisors every semester for a preregistration consultation. Students interested in internships or cooperative education are asked to meet with their academic/intern faculty coordinators for each work session. We provide special advising for graduating seniors.

Recent Changes and Future Plans

To Improve Quality of Advising

We have implemented a ChE Homepage on the network to provide information on the program to both MSU and prospective students. We provide availability of resumes of students seeking internships or permanent employment to prospective employers upon student release approval. We also provide periodic updates from the Department Head or certifying officer to faculty advisors and students.

To Improve Accessibility of Advisors

With a general open-door policy, the accessibility is very good. We will continue this policy.
