One of the significant differences that the CoE has from other colleges in UM is the structure to add and drop classes. The students are always required to see an advisor who assigns them the classes take. Students cannot add or drop classes by themselves.
“The curriculum is so particular that we want to make sure that the students remain on track,” says the CoE academic advisor.
The CoE is the only college in UM that has grown so much compared to the previous year. According to Mrs. Sierra, this is attributed to the fact that students who complete an Engineering degree have their choice of job. They are very lucky to get opportunities in other areas of their wish. Usually, the college has a higher rate of employment compared to other schools and majors.
Students in the CoE are likely to do a semester abroad. The University of Miami has a wide range of programs for the students and their different majors.
“I went to study abroad last summer in Rome, and it was the best experience in my life. I could see different types of structural buildings that do not exist here in America,” says Valeria Angelini, a sophomore, studying Civil Engineering.
The professors in CoE ensure that freshman students are in the same level of knowledge, so they can help each other. This way, they make friends that for the rest of the three years in the university.
“I am from Guatemala, and when I came to UMI, I was afraid to be alone; in fact, I remember making many friends in my freshman year,” says Alex Kuesterman, sophomore, studying Industrial Engineering. ...Show more
