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.

How do I contact or meet with my adviser?


How do I contact or meet with my adviser?

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.

Email and Telephone:

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.
