Message from the Assistant Dean


Welcome to the Division of Engineering Student Services and Advising (DESSA). The goal of our office is to provide engineering and computer science students with hands-on guidance, support and encouragement to help facilitate their academic success as they work towards their degree. The DESSA team is comprised of academic advisors and student service professionals who work closely with students to address their unique and specific needs through personalized advising, academic coaching, and meaningful programming to enhance their university experience.

The division provides a wide array of support services such as free tutoring for computer, engineering, math and science courses, scholarship opportunities, mentor programs, and much more!

While at FAU, we strongly encourage students to step outside the classroom to gain real world experience. Many of our students are offered incredible opportunities to do internships at prestigious companies like Facebook, NASA, Modernizing Medicine, Lockheed Martin, and many more. Students also have opportunities to engage in research at the undergraduate level and continue their education to get their master’s and doctoral degrees.

These accomplishments are just a few achievements among a number of incredible things happening within the College of Engineering and Computer Science. With so many exciting things on the horizon, this is truly a great time to join the College and become part of the next generation of engineers and computer scientists!
