Registering for Classes at the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering

Undergraduate advisement is available to all undergraduate students who need assistance with their academic planning and with navigating being a student at GT.  Advisement is a necessary aspect of this program for students to be successful.  Our hope is for students to utilize academic advising as a proactive and preventative resource, as opposed to a reactive measure.  Nonetheless, our advisors are available for any academic needs students may encounter.  Specifically, advisors guide students through successful completion of the 132-credit hour BSAE curriculum.  They monitor and coach students toward their individual academic goals, including how to integrate undergraduate research, internships/Co-ops, study abroad, minors, and other extracurricular activities to maximize your exposure to AE.  To meet with an advisor, students have three options:

  • Advising Appointments: You can set up a virtual advising appointment with an advisor by going to Advisor Link. Virtual will be the default mode for appointments due to its efficiency and because each advisor will telework during a portion of the week.  If you prefer in-person for that appointment, let the advisor know and they will accommodate if possible.
  • Drop-In Advising: Please feel free to stop by the AE Undergraduate Advising office (Montgomery Knight Bldg., Room 308) for any questions or concerns you may have. In the interest of campus health, our advising team requests that students wear masks during in-person advising appointments.
  • Email Contacts: If you have quick questions that do not require an advising session,

What to Expect

Academics are just the beginning. AE students expect to be challenged - in the classroom, the lab, and on the job. And the Daniel Guggenheim School seeks to exceed that expectation for students at all ranks - from first-year to doctorate. Our faculty, curriculum, academic advising staff, and research agenda push students to cultivate an expansive grasp of aerospace engineering and the problems it can solve. When GT-AE students graduate, we expect them to define the future of the field, not recite its history.

How to Get There

Successful AE students pro-actively utilize the many resources available to them through their faculty advisors, the Academic Advising Office, and AE website. As any good engineer would, they pay attention to the details -- things like registration deadlines, advisement meetings, mandatory paperwork, curriculum requirements, and course availability - so they can spend more time on the big picture.

How to Get Beyond

Research is required of all AE grad students, and is also pursued by more than 30 percent of eligible AE undergrads. It is a hallmark of an exceptional student experience, but it is not the only one. Internships, co-ops, and study-abroad opportunities also make GT-AE grads very valuable in an increasingly competitive global workplace. Highly successful AE alums consistently tell us that it's the work they did outside the classroom that gave them the edge when they graduated.
