Advising

Faculty Advisers

Students in CEE are encouraged to seek mentoring from CEE faculty advisers.

Faculty advisers (and, indeed, all faculty members) hold office hours throughout the school year to help you with course content; advise on courses, career objectives, graduate school, letters of recommendation, and summer internships.
