Welcome from the College of Engineering

Welcome to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Grainger College of Engineering’s Undergraduate Advising Wiki. Here, you will find information to help you succeed as an Illinois engineering student, from before your arrival on campus through your graduation, and everything in between.

If you have questions, if you want to talk with someone about studying engineering, or if you would just like some reassurance that you are on the right track, the advising staff in 206 Engineering Hall (EH) would be happy to work with you. 206 EH is also a great place to come when your life or your studies are presenting you with some difficulties. Remember, the sooner you come in, the more options we will have for helping you.

We look forward to working with you,
Jonathan J. Makela
