  • Career Advisors--These advisors help students understand what type of job opportunities exist within this degree path, as well as the job prospects within the specific degree.
  • Transitional Advising--General Engineering advising for all new external transfer students (students who transfer from another university to VT’s college of engineering), and current VT students who are working towards transferring into or out of the College of Engineering. In addition, advising is available here for students who are on Policy 91 probation or suspension to them create and work towards their academic goals.
