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, internships, and discussing 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
