Advising for Mechatronics Students

Navigating the complexities of TCC or any college institution is never easy. That is why I am here to help. My job as an instructor of Mechatronics in only part of my role at the college. Another big role is that of advising students to help you chart a course to graduation in a way that works with your situation. Please schedule a time with me so that we can make that plan. E-mail me at ebeaver@tcc.edu

The resources below are only here to help you, but cannot replace a one-on-one meeting with an advisor. If you have not met with an advisor, do that first.
