All new undergraduate students must attend New Student Orientation, where the freshman advisor will explain the procedure for registration and the student will register for classes.
Transfer students also will have to see the freshman advisor for an initial evaluation of their transcripts and may be directed to a faculty advisor.
New graduate students will be assigned a faculty advisor based on research or study interests indicated in the applicant’s statement of purpose.
Our advisors will assist you in exploring educational and career objectives and relevant opportunities. They strive to help students:
- clarify their life and career goals,
- assess individual academic abilities,
- develop suitable educational plans,
- select appropriate courses and complementary educational experiences,
- interpret institutional requirements,
- enhance their awareness of available educational resources (such as internship opportunities, honors, and tutoring programs),
- evaluate their progress toward established goals,
- assist them in completing degree requirements in a timely manner,
- seek out and use support services in the institution and the community.
An internship is a great way to gain hands-on experience–it can be a first step to finding that perfect job! We recommend registering with PNW’s Career Center to be informed when employers post their internship and position openings.
Other internship resources include
- Chegg Internships
- Professional engineering organizations such as IEEE and SWE
- Directly at a company’s website
IEEE (Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
The IEEE club provides members with a wide range of information pertaining to the fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers)
The Society of Automotive Engineers wants you! SAE is not just about engineering and manufacturing, it’s an adventure for all PNW students. A cross-functional team of students get together to design, promote, obtain sponsors, build, develop production and cost analysis reports, and place into competition a prototype off-road vehicle.
SWE (Society of Women Engineers)
We inform young women, their parents, counselors and the general public about the qualifications and achievements of women in engineering and the opportunities available to them.
NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers)
NSBE develops intensive programs for increasing the participation of blacks and other unrepresented groups in the field of engineering and the engineering technologies. Members attend national and regional conferences, retreats and workshops. Membership provides opportunity for scholarships, awards, and career and academic counseling and mentoring.
