How it works
The Watson School has a two-tiered advising structure, with faculty serving as the primary program advisers and the Watson Advising Office staff providing school and University-wide information and addressing various other advising and referral issues.
Computer science freshmen are advised by their department's program coordinator in addition to being assigned to an individual faculty advisor in their program.
Engineering freshmen connect with the Engineering Design Division (EDD) director along with additional EDD faculty during their first year in the Watson School.
Upon official entry into their selected department of major, all rising sophomores, along with sophomore and junior transfer students, are assigned to a faculty advisor in their department. Additionally, each engineering department has an undergraduate director.
