Connect with Our Faculty for Professional Advice

Academic advising is a critical part of your Mason experience. It is essential for keeping you on track during your academic career here. 

Throughout your time at Mason, you will be assigned a primary and secondary academic advisor. Your primary advisor will be a professional staff advisor who will assist you with any and all matters related to courses/curriculum, policy, and procedure, campus resources, and serve as an overall guide during your time here. Your secondary advisor will be a faculty advisor. The faculty advisor is here to assist with conversations regarding your future goals, and internships, and discuss the discipline-specific areas within Mechanical Engineering.  

You will be notified of your academic advisor your first semester at Mason and are expected to meet with them once a semester and will receive email reminders to do so. Students have registration holds placed on their accounts preventing registration for the upcoming semester. Once a student meets with their advisor for the upcoming semester the hold will be removed allowing registration. If you are a declared mechanical engineering major and cannot determine who your advisor is, please email

Advising resources can also be utilized at the College of Engineering and Computing Undergraduate Student Services
