Office Visits

The best times to reach an Engineering staff member in person in the Engineering Office is typically between 7:30 am and 9:30 am and  3:00 pm and 3:30 pm, Monday through Thursday; and between 7:30 am and 9:30 am on Friday.  If you cannot make it at those times, give us a call before you visit to let us know you are coming, so we can make sure that we are here for you and not in the field performing other tasks when you arrive.
