Department of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering students should have curricular advising in advance of their assigned registration time. For curricular advising all current ME students will be advised by Dr. Biggers, Janeen Putman or Michael Freeman.

For all advising appointments for Summer and Fall 2015 registration, students are required to print the Registration Worksheet twice, complete both copies, and print a copy of your academic transcript. You will be asked to reschedule your appointment if you do not have these items.

Summer/Fall 2015 Advising

Advising will start Wednesday March 11th. To schedule an appointment, walk to our office door (the outer door to the 106 office area) and sign-up for a time. We will not take appointments via email due to the number of students that are in ME.

ME 2000 students:
You were already advised in class – if you missed class you cannot sign-up for an appointment before April 6th. Student workers will have the list of students who missed, will remove your name, and will email you if you that you’ve been dropped if you sign-up before then.

Students currently AWAY from Clemson (on Co-op, study abroad, internship, etc…):
We will advise you via email and you should have received an email already. If not, use the registration form attached to this email and send it to Michael ( We will be completing these in the order they were received. Please be patient, while we started early, it is a very busy time and we will make sure we are through these before your registration window opens as long as you don’t email the day before or day of your window opening.

You will be advised by Janeen Putman. Please sign-up for an appointment with her ASAP on the wall outside her office. Please fill out this Google form so that I know you are planning to graduate. The graduation notification form is here: Graduating Aug/Dec 15. Also, again this semester, the only way you will be able to register for technical electives will be via Google form. The Technical Elective Form is here: TE Form. Here is our Technical Elective Requirements sheet for your reference and convenience.

All Other ME Students:
Please sign-up for an advising time with Dr. Biggers, Michael Freeman, or Janeen Putman. All will have sheets posted outside our offices by March 11th.
