Dr. Javon Adams has been named the coordinator of transfer student academic advising in the College of Engineering’s Office of Academic Affairs at North Carolina State University.
In this role, Adams oversees the evaluation of transfer course equivalencies, advises engineering first year and transfer students and works with the College’s 3+2 and 2+2 program partners. He is also involved in engineering recruiting and outreach initiatives.
Adams began his new role in June 2017 and is excited about making an impact in students’ lives. “Everyone who walks through the door is completely unique, and I have been given the opportunity to help each of them,” said Adams. “As a graduate student, I saw not only domestic students, but also international students struggle to make the transition to NC State, so to have the ability to aide in their success, I find it to be an effective use of my finite life minutes.”
Additionally, he will continue to help lead student research initiatives as the research coordinator in the College’s Women and Minority Engineering Programs, and teach engineering courses. Previously, Adams was a postdoctoral research scholar in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering researching bituminous surface treatments for transportation systems.
Adams received his bachelor’s (2007), master’s (2009) and doctoral (2014) degrees in civil engineering from NC State.
