Academic Advising

Regardless of what your academic or career goals may be, if you are enrolled in an A&E CAD program, we highly recommend you meet with your advisor to explore your options and define your focus. Your advisor is also a program coordinator, an instructor, and an experienced professional in their respective field; their knowledge can help you wherever you are in your development as a student and/or professional.
