Materials Science and Engineering students receive individual advising each semester prior to registration from one of our departmental advisors, Ms. Laura Kinard and Dr. Joshua Tong. During these advising sessions, the student and advisor discuss planned coursework for the upcoming semester and completion of the curriculum within the student’s desired timeframe.  Additionally, the student and their advisor may also discuss plans post-graduation, options for full-time employment, co-op, internship, REU, and study abroad opportunities available based on the student's goals.
