ME Program Advisement Policy

The Mechanical Engineering (ME) Program considers student advisement as crucial for student success in the Program, and as an integral component of faculty duties. The following policies have been developed to complement the general advising policies set forth by the College of Engineering.

Student Assignment to Advisors

  1. All entering first year ME students are assigned to Mrs. Maria Perez-Colon (perezcolon@rowan.edu) for advising purposes.
  2. Sophomore, Junior and Senior students are pooled together, and assigned academic advisors from amongst the Mechanical Engineering Faculty. Approximately equal numbers of students are assigned to each faculty member. Once assigned, the students remain with the faculty advisor for their remaining time in the program until graduation, unless the faculty member leaves the university or takes a leave of absence.
  3. Upon entering the ME Program, transfer students are assigned to Dr. Smitesh Bakrania.
  4. If a student wishes to change his/her advisor, the request should be made in writing to the ME Department Head, Dr. Ratneshwar Jha, and to the ME faculty member whom the student would prefer to have as advisor. The student, the original advisor, and the new advisor will be notified if the request is granted.
  5. For any other advising related questions, students may contact Professor Melanie Amadoro, ME Undergraduate Program Coordinator.
