Doctoral First year PhD and MS/PhD-Track students in:

Applied Physics (AP) see Prof. Mauel (11:30am-2:50pm, 213 Mudd)

Applied Mathematics (AM) see Prof. Sobel (11:30am-2:50pm, 217 Mudd)

Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) see Prof. Marianetti (11:30am 2:50pm, 1106B Mudd)

Your liaison in the APAM office is the Student Services Coordinator, Montserrat Fernandez-Pinkley. New students should contact Montserrat (and not the advisor) with any questions before registration day. Before seeing your advisor, check in the APAM office (200 Mudd) to make sure the location of the advisor meeting has not changed.

New Students
New Students are required to attend the events of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) Orientation from Tuesday, August 28 through Friday, August 30 (RSVP at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Fall2012_NewGraduateStudentOrientation.)

International graduate students are also required to attend the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) Orientation, on Friday, August 24.

All new students should read the:

Columbia Engineering: Guide for New Graduate Students 

APAM Department: Information for New Graduate Students

Continuing Students
Continuing students who did not register last April may register on-line from July 30 - August 10 AND August 28 - August 30. Before being allowed to register, each student must see an advisor to have his/her program approved, signed and submitted to the APAM Department staff.

Continuing students may arrange to have their programs approved during the summer. To avoid late fees and have program approval before classes begin, it is important to meet with an advisor sometime before August 30.
