Talk to Your Adviser. A key to success is to develop a strong relationship with your adviser. Be sure to discuss your long-term goals and dreams, as well as which classes to take and when to take them. Act Before Problems Get Too Big. The best thing to do if you have a problem is to seek help from your fellow students, your professor, your adviser, Academic Counseling, or Counseling and Psychological Services before a problem gets too big. Make Time for Yourself. The engineering curriculum can be stressful. Reward yourself for the hours of studying with some of your favorite activities … sports, music or hanging out with friends.
