Student FAQs and Staff Contacts

Frank with students in the labThe Department of Automotive Engineering's staff members are eager to help students with questions, concerns, and projects. To make things easier, we have compiled a list of the most common issues that students need help with and listed the appropriate staff contact.

The list includes both tasks performed by administrative and lab staff.

Please click the staff member's name to send an e-mail. Often, an e-mail is the best way to make contact. If a room and/or phone number are listed, you may also use these to make contact.

For a full listing of staff members, please visit the faculty and staff page.
