    • We will work with you to find the required advisor during the process.

  • What is the role of the CSSE Department faculty advisor?

    • The minimum duties of a project faculty advisor is to articulate the expectations and objectives of a senior project, which includes helping to appropriately scope the work (more than a weekend, not so much as to deserve a doctorate), 2 units worth of work each quarter, etc. Many advisors do more of course.
