Engineering Student Services (ESS) Advisers
Make sure to use our ONLINE APPOINTMENT SYSTEM!
Academic Advising is key to a successful undergraduate experience. Every College of Engineering student is assigned an academic adviser upon admission. This person is called your ESS Engineering Student Services (ESS) Adviser. Advisers are assigned based upon your major and whenever possible work with you throughout your entire undergraduate career. Note: Students admitted as Undeclared work with a designated adviser until they declare at which point their ESS adviser will be based on their declared major.
Your ESS advisers are available to provide assistance with routine to complex matters related to your undergraduate education . They answer questions regarding degree and graduation requirements, policy and procedure, and forms/petitions. They assist with academic planning, academic difficulties/concerns, suggesting enrichment opportunities and make referrals to campus resources. They are here to offer guidance and support throughout your undergraduate studies.
Advising is available on an appointment only basis with the exception of Wednesdays, which are reserved for drop-in advising.
Appointments may be made using our online appointments system or by calling (510) 642-7594 during business hours. Scheduled appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9-11:45 and 1-3:45.
Please be on time to your appointment. If you are more than five minutes late, you will have to reschedule.
There is drop-in advising every Wednesday from 9:00-11:30am and 1-3:30pm. Come to Engineering Student Services in 230 Bechtel Engineering Center and sign in at the front desk. Drop-in advising is on a first-come, first-served basis.
You may also contact your adviser via email or telephone. It is strongly recommended you meet with your adviser in person for questions or concerns requiring in-depth discussion.
ESS adviser assignments are based upon major unless you are Engineering-Undeclared. Undeclared students see our specialized undeclared adviser, Kathy Barrett, until declaration of major.
