Welcome the UAA College of Engineering Advising Page!

All students in the College of Engineering should seek advising throughout their education. Working with your advisor is key to your success!


Who is my Advisor?

If you are an incoming freshman, transfer student, returning student, or changing your major to engineering, your first point of contact is the CoEng Advising Center. There are two advisors you can meet with: Crickett Watt and Younger Oliver.  As Academic Advisors, they can assist you in navigating UAA's many procedures, resources, and answer many of your questions.  They can also help you choose your classes as you begin your education with the College of Engineering.

Once you have reached full major status, you will work directly with your Faculty Advisor. Your Faculty Advisor is an expert in their field. They will help you choose classes that match your interests and career goals, as well as help connect you to leading industry partners and internship/job opportunities.
