Engineering Student Centre

To help you achieve your academic goal is our Mandate, fulfilling all the requirements to realize your academic goal is your Responsibility.

Advising

Academic advising is a collaborative process of developing an educational plan that fits the individual student’s abilities, interests, personal circumstances and career goals. 

Academic advising plays an important role in developing strategies for successful completion of your undergraduate degree. Academic advisors and Departmental Undergraduate Faculty advisors offer individualized assistance with the aim of facilitating student sucess. 

Academic advising goals are to:
  • Assist students to better understand themselves and direct them to available resources that will help them meet their academic and career goals.
  • Help students understand University and College policies and procedures, academic requirements and consequences.
  • Ensure that degree requirements are satisfied systematically.

The student-advisor relationship is one of partnership and shared responsibility. You are expected to actively seek advising, participate in your own decision making and take responsibility for satisfactory progress toward your educational goals.

To make an appointment to see an academic advisor or for general questions and information, please contact: Engineering Student Centre Rm 2A05, (306) 966 5274 or engineering.studentcentre@usask.ca
