Gilmore 116 (main office)
Office hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30am-12:30pm
First-year Advising: First year Ecological Engineering students (high school graduates with less than 24 quarter/16 semester college credits) will meet with a COE First Year advisor during their first academic year at OSU. Please visit the First Year Advising webpage to find out more information.
Faculty Mentors: Faculty will now serve as student mentors and act as a resource for information about the profession, job and career guidance, and other aspects of your professional development. Check this list to find the name and contact information for your faculty mentor. Your faculty mentor is also listed as your advisor (even though your actual advisor is Rachel Jones) on MyDegrees.

Advising appointments

Students are required to meet with their academic advisor every term to discuss upcoming courses and receive their PIN. PINs can not be issued without an advising meeting sometime during that term. It is required by the College of Engineering that you fill out at least 3 future terms in your MyDegrees planner prior to having an advising session and receiving your PIN. For more infomartion on how to use your MyDegrees planner, please watch the tutorial provided by the Office of the Registrar. Also helpful is the tutorial on Scheduler

If you need to drop off a form and Rachel is not in the office, please put it in the mailbox on her door.

Academic progression model

  • The College of Engineering will no longer be accepting student into the Pre/Professional model that began in 1981.  Effective Summer 2019, the College of Engineering now operates the 15 undergraduate majors as part of an academic progression model.  This change happened as a way to increase student success, major exploration and fit, along with allowing students to have more control of their academic program. 
  • While many aspects of the student experience will be similar, there are some key changes. You can read about specific changes to the Ecological Engineering undergradute program here.
