Who To Contact

ECST has a split advising model carried out by the ECST Advising Center and the Department faculty to ensure students achieve their educational and personal goals. 

Continue to work with the ECST Advisors at the Student Success Center. A lower-division student includes those who have not completed the Calculus/Differential Equations series and Physics series. Visit the ECST Advising Schedule page for details.

Dr. Sonya Lopez and Dr. Gustavo Menezes advise upper-division students. Please refer to their advising schedule and details below to request a meeting.
