Graduate Program Advisor

After a student has been admitted to the ISE graduate program and arrives on campus, if he/she does not already have an advisor, he/she will be advised by the Graduate Chair. The Graduate Chair will assist the student in scheduling courses each semester, in structuring a graduate program, in deciding on a major professor for research and will initially be the student's faculty advisor.

When the student has decided on a research area, he/she will choose a major professor in the first semester. The decision to accept the student (or not) rests with the prospective major professor. After a major professor is chosen and has accepted the student, the previous faculty advisor is relieved of advisory responsibility for the student's program and progress, and the major professor assumes these duties along with the responsibility for research direction.
