Advising & Academic Success
Dr. Kathy Chen provides advising to all materials engineering students. She is also available to speak with other Cal Poly majors considering a degree in materials engineering.
MATE student clubs offer advising support as well. Clubs send email announcements for gatherings where students can get inside tips on registering for classes from their peers and receive informal tutoring from a peer.

LSAMP is dedicated to broadening the participation of underrepresented minority (URM) students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
Supplemental Workshops in Science (SWS)
Supplemental Workshops in Science provide an accelerated learning environment for selected classes. Guided by trained facilitators, students participate in discussions, compare notes, develop study strategies and challenge their understanding with practice exams and worksheets. Workshops meet twice a week and earn one unit of academic credit.
Supplemental Workshops in Math (SWM)
Supplemental Workshops in Math is an intensive mathematics program for students who are enrolled in mathematics courses from MATH 100 to 143. SWM helps students master math concepts and promote collaborative learning, including concept enhancement, problem-solving and mock exams.
