Engineering Advising

Meet Your Advising Team

Students enrolled in an Engineering degree program have three members on their Advising Team: Pre-Major/Major Advisor, a Student Success Advisor, and an Advising Dean. Mechanical Engineers and Computer Science students also have additional advising staff within their departments. Each member of your team plays a different role in your advising process at Tufts.

Your Pre-Major/Major Advisor

Pre-Major/Major Advisors can help all students with:

  • Course planning
  • Registration
  • Academic guidance
  • Finding campus resources

New Engineering students are assigned a Pre-Major Advisor prior to matriculation. Pre-Major Advisors meet students during Orientation and provide ongoing support until students declare a major. When a major is declared, Engineering students are assigned a Major Advisor who is a full-time faculty member from the declared department. Engineering students must declare a major and secure a Major Advisor by March 1st of their first year. 

If you don't know your Advisor, log in to SIS and look under "Academics" on your homepage. You'll find their name and a link to email them directly.

Your Student Success Advisor

Your SSA can help first- and second-year students with:
  • Resources for first- and second-year students
  • Course exploration
  • Campus life questions
  • Major exploration
  • University resource and co-curricular opportunities
  • Internal transfers from the Schools of Arts and Sciences to the School of Engineering, and vice versa
