Curriculum Changes

The purpose of graduate advising in FIU CEE is to ensure students are successful in completing the graduate degree requirement and derive the best educational value from their experiences in the department.

Advising involves academic planning, degree requirements, course prerequisites, and the selection of an academic advisor. Once selected, your academic advisor helps with administrative procedures such as registration.

The graduate program director will serve as your de facto advisor upon your acceptance to a CEE graduate program. The GPD will provide initial advising and help you with change of major, course equivalencies and graduation requirements, among others.
