New & Current Students
ASU Ramgineers are practice ready engineers with the broader skills necessary to be future industry leaders.
All Civil Engineering students are advised by the Civil Engineering Academic Advisor. If you are a new student to ASU and have designated Civil Engineering as your major OR if you are a current ASU student interested in changing your major to Civil Engineering, please contact the Civil Engineering Academic Advisor.
There are three ways to meet with the Civil Engineering Academic Advisor:
- By Appointment: Contact the academic advisor via email at (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or phone at 325-486-5503 to schedule an appointment.
- Drop-In Advising: Feel free to come by the David L. Hirschfeld Department of Engineering located in West Annex during Drop-In Advising. Students are helped according to the order in which they arrive. Check the Events tab for Drop-In Advising times.
- Skype Advising: The Civil Engineering academic advisor is available for SKYPE advising at designated times or by appointment. Students will be helped via Skype advising in the order in which they “call in”. Check the Events tab for Skype Advising times.
What to bring to EVERY advising session:
- CE Academic Planner: This is a record of your entire academic transcript. The Excel document contains two pages (or tabs at the bottom). The Transfer page is where you need to input all the courses you have completed outside of Angelo State. The ASU tab is set up so that you can enter in all your coursework by semester. You need to enter in all the semesters you have taken to-date. Once your past semesters have been entered, you need to complete the current and future semesters all the way through graduation. At the end of every semester you will update the excel document with your grades, semester GPA and cumulative GPA.
- Copy of your unofficial transcript. This document should be printed from RamPort. Be sure to print your entire transcript.
- Academic Success Skills Survey: Assess your academic success skills using this 16-question assessment. Score the assessment as directed, and answer the Self-Assessment worksheet questions.
- The Time Picture: This activity provides you with a system for budgeting your time. Complete the activity as directed in the document.
Project Success is a program of intrusive academic advising designed to provide added support to those students who may not meet the minimum requirements to advance from Pre-Civil Engineering to a Civil Engineering major. Participants in Project Success are required to complete a personal academic assessment and meet with the Civil Engineering academic advisor at least three times a semester.
The three advising meetings are scheduled around major course dates:
- Meeting One: This meeting must be scheduled before the second week of the semester. At this meeting, you will review your Personal Academic Assessment with the academic advisor and complete an Action Plan for the semester.
- Meeting Two: This meeting is schedule after the first round of tests. This meeting provides an opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have after your first round of tests. This meeting is the most important of all three meetings. During this meeting you will review your Action Plan and make any necessary adjustments to ensure success at the end of the semester.
- Meeting Three: This meeting is scheduled before your final exams begin. At this meeting, you will discuss your Action Plan and determine what steps you will need to take to successfully complete your Project Success semester.
Students required to participate in Project Success due to Academic Probation or Academic Suspension may also be required to enroll in University Studies (USTD) course 1101. The USTD 1101 class is completely free.
Future course offerings will help you complete your Civil Engineering Academic Planner so that you know what classes you need to take and when they will be offered.
The Civil Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) offers students in Civil Engineering the opportunity to live in Plaza Verde along with other civil engineering students. The Student Learning Community Leader plans regular interactions and activities for the Living Learning Community. Check out the Events page for the Civil Engineering Living Learning Community calendar.
As a newly established academic department, our students are hard at work to bring professional civil engineering student organizations to campus. Check back for more information in the future.
