Engineering Tutoring Center

The Academic Success Center (ASC) in cooperation with the College of Engineering (COE) offers FREE tutoring for a variety of UNLV engineering courses throughout the school year, in TBE-A.  Click the links below for information about hours, room location, and tutoring services offered.  Remember - tutoring is for ANYONE who wishes to improve!


Writing Assistance and Resources

Students have access to the UNLV Writing Center to get advice and training.  The center is not a copy-editing service, but an excellent service to help each student improve their writing for coursework and career. 

The College also provides a list of excellent resources for Engineering researchers writing papers, proposals and reports: .

Additional Writing Resources

  • UNLV Writing Center
    The UNLV Writing Center provides individual consultations for UNLV students. They don't copy edit your paper, but identify areas for improvement and help you find more writing assistance resources/tools. Submit your work online: , or call for more information: 702-895-3908 . Take advantage of this excellent resource before you graduate!
  • Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL)
    It's not enough to find sources, you'll have to integrate them as well. This Purdue University website provides information on how to incorporate your literature review findings and data into papers and other projects. Especially helpful sections include: Writing with Statistics, Paraphrase Exercises, and Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing. Also provides citation and other style assistance.
  • Grammarly
    This commercial website provides some automated plagiarism and grammar checks for a portion of your work.
  • Grammar Girl
    When you become an accomplished writer, you start wondering about the nuances of word choice, punctuation, and find either frustration or humor in very common mistakes. This weblog takes the approach of humor to educate readers about the art of better writing. (I suspect that I have made at least one of those common mistakes in this description - if so, tell me!)
  • Technical Writing - Purdue OWL
    Depending upon the audience/client for your writing, different expectations and standards may apply. Technical science writing is quite different than writing for a journal or a book editor. This page of the Purdue OWL website provides several useful tips.
