Our academic advisors  are available to help you plan an academic program that meets your educational and professional goals and to provide you with information you need to make wise educational and personal decisions. Advisors can help you explore engineering majors and career options and direct you to important campus resources for assistance with test-taking, study skills, career planning and much more.

The College of Engineering, and MSU in general, provides multiple access points for students to get assistance with Photo of two students looking at a textbookcoursework, through tutoring and/or supplemental instruction.  Besides the many MSU resources available, such as the Math Learning Center, the Writing Center and the Office of Supportive Services, the College of Engineering's Guided Learning Center (GLC) in the Diversity Programs Office (DPO) has, for about 15 years, provided peer tutoring. 

Also, the CoRe Experience which seeks to demonstrate to students the importance of engineering and the positive impact that engineers make on society and the world around them. Along with community and corporate partners, we bring real-world expertise and challenges into the classroom and residential environment, reinforcing the relevance of studies in engineering to solving global challenges.

Women in Engineering
