Current Student Resources
Congratulations on your decision to study engineering at Princeton! We hope that you find your courses and independent work to be challenging and rewarding.
Academic advising for freshman is organized by the SEAS Undergraduate Affairs Office.
Each freshman adviser is a fellow in a residential college and has about 10-12 advisees. Sophomores, juniors and seniors are advised by their departments, with the departmental representative serving as the principal faculty adviser. The deans and directors of studies in the residential colleges also play a key role in the academic lives of undergraduates.
As preparation for careers in a global technological and economic community, engineering students are encouraged to obtain international experience by studying or working abroad. Engineering students are also encouraged to obtain professional experience in industry or research through summer internships and jobs.
The SEAS Undergraduate Affairs Office works closely with the six engineering departments and with University offices such as the Office of the Dean of the College and the residential colleges. The office ensures that B.S.E. students are being well advised, responds to questions about the curriculum and academic support, promotes student participation in international study, and fosters the professional development of engineering students.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Undergraduate Affairs Office in C-209 Engineering Quad with any question about the engineering program of study.
