Academic advising is designed to help students make best decisions about their educational and career goals. Faculty and staff in various colleges and departments are available to assist students who have chosen a major. Students who have not yet made a commitment to a major field will be assisted by the University Studies Division staff. Advising is viewed as an ongoing activity and not just as a schedule planning function. Students should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor each semester to review their progress and to make plans for the future.

A SharePoint site is under development as of Summer 2020 and will be rolled out no later than Spring 2021 to provide IE undergrad students an All-In-One place to find everything they need to know about advising.  

*Non-IE students who are interested in transferring to Industrial Engineering (IE) should contact the Engineering Undergraduate Programs (EUP) Office at 713-743-4200. Prospective and current UH students interested in entering the IE Program are encouraged to attend one of the Egineering Transitional Information Sessions held by EUP office. Those information sessions discuss courses required and the specifics of what the UH Cullen College of Engineering wants to see in students to qualify. For details about our available info sessions, please visit https://www.egr.uh.edu/students/information-sessions.
