Kiewit Undergraduate Student Services Center

Located in 2043 Black Engineering
The Kiewit Undergraduate Student Services Center has been open since the spring semester in 2009. The center was made possible by a $200,000 pledge by the Kiewit Corporation, a widely respected constuction and mining organization. Within the center, there are two on-site computers for students to register for classes, a monitor that broadcasts announcements, and a help room. Additionally, a wall display showcases accomplishments and awards of students, student organizations, and the center.

The Mechanical Engineering Department’s Academic Advisers are dedicated to enhancing each student’s academic and career aspirations.
