Student Resources

This website provides useful student resources.

The main objective of the ESE516 staff will always be to provide a great environment for the students and to ensure they have access to the resources they need to succeed and learn. I want you to really enjoy the class and to find it very useful in your careers! If you have any question or concern, please e-mail me and the TAs of the class. We will be happy to help and guide you along the way!

Student Services

The ESE516 staff is committed to the well-being of students – both in their mental wellness as well as their academic endeavours. Please feel free to contact me or any of the TAs if you need someone to listen or talk to, even if it is not related to the class. All communications with me are strictly confidential.

Following are resources that the University of Pennsylvania has provided for their students.

Penn Student Services provides a general directory of the services provided to all Penn students. There you can find sub-links that can direct you to more specific services. I encourage students to visit this link to learn about all the resources at Penn for students.

Of note are the following:

  • CAPS: If you or someone you know is in distress and urgently needs to speak with someone, please do not hesitate to contact CAPS: 215-898-7021; 3624 Market St. If you are uncomfortable reaching out to CAPS, any member of the instruction staff will be happy to contact them on your behalf.
  • Wellness at Penn provides important resources for all the spectrum of Wellness. I encourage all students to view this link, as it might provide you with services you might not be aware are available for you at Penn!
