Speak to an Adviser

The advising staff in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) is here to help students through academic guidance and support.

HCDE Academic Services provides empathetic and personalized advising to engage students in their pursuit of personal, academic, and professional exploration. We challenge students to be inquisitive, creative, and thoughtful global citizens.

We request that students wear masks for in-person advising appointments. If you are unable or uncomfortable wearing a mask, please schedule a virtual appointment or email askhcde@uw.edu to discuss alternative options.
