Thinking of Transferring to UNCC?
The TRC team attended a Transfer Symposium last week at UNCC during which the Engineering Department shared with us an exciting opportunity. UNCC’s Engr Dept. is hosting an open house on Friday April 8th for students interested in pursuing Engineering or Engineering Technology degrees at UNCC. The event is from 9:30am-2:00pm on the UNCC campus. There will be an information session followed by an opportunity for students to tour facilities and labs. Visiting students will also get to meet current students and faculty within their perspective programs. Please view the attached flier for additional information and let students know they can register at the link below.
Priority registration for classes starts April 22nd. You should be ready to register for classes as soon as you can to make sure you get into the sections you want. Check the priority registration dates and compare it to your total earned credit hours in your MyCollege to see when your registration date is. If you have yet to do so, please contact your Engineering Technology faculty advisor now. You can check who your academic advisor currently is in MyCollege as well. If you don’t one of the people on our faculty page as your advisor, then email one of us immediately so we can help you figure out which classes to take next semester. Sign up for classes as soon as you are allowed to. We will begin cancelling classes with low enrollment 2 weeks before the first day of the Fall 2016 semester. Don’t wait to sign up or the class might be cancelled.
Guided Study Sessions
If you are not making at least a B in your current classes, then you should be coming to the free weekly guided study sessions we offer. We have increased the number of guided study sessions for Circuits 1, Circuits 2, and Digital Logic to have a day and night section of each. Here is the current schedule.
Looking for a Job?
If you are in your second year of your degree program, it is often a good time to start looking at positions that are available. You can always visit the NCworks website to search through a career field and job postings at any time to see what skills employers are looking for.
Welcome to the new Computer, Electrical, and Electronics Engineering Technology (CEEET) Newsletter. At least once a month we will use this website to highlight important dates, events, and even introduce you to faculty, past students, and employers looking to hire students from our programs.
The beginning of March might not be the time you normally think about advising, but it is actually “Priority Advising” month. Are you registered to be in the correct program? The program you *think* you are in? If not, then you’ll have lots of trouble having financial aid pay for classes (They will only pay for classes in the program you are registered in). To check, Please log in to MyCollege and check your program evaluation. If you are not enrolled in the correct program, please contact your academic advisor immediately. We recommend that you speak with one of the faculty in the CEEET department for help with this as opposed to Central advising. You can find the name of your current advisor in MyCollege as well. Remember to register for classes as soon as you can so the classes will be offered. If you wait until two weeks before classes start to register, then the sections or classes you want might have already been canceled due to low enrollment. Don’t let this happen to you!
Also, every tuesday CPCC holds meeting for students planning to transfer to university. Please be sure to visit one of these “Transfer Tuesday” sessions if you are interested in transferring.
Guided Study Sessions Happen Every Week!
Did you know there are weekly guided study sessions for Circuits 1, Circuits 2 and Digital Logic? In fact, there’s a day and a night study session for each of those classes. Click here to view the times and places for each study session as well as to see when the Lab Assistants can meet to work with you one-on-one. They will not be lecturing, rather they will help you answer questions you have while doing your homeworks. Come prepared to these sessions with questions you have so they can help you. Of course, simply taking part in these sessions will raise your grade, but some instructors are giving extra credit if you take part in these sessions between exams. Ask your instructor for more information.
