More than Funding

Teaching and research funding opportunities through the College of Engineering offer more than financial assistance. Additional potential benefits for our graduate students include:

  • Experience the challenges and successes of working in a collaborative research environment.
  • Increase the potential for follow-on research opportunities and future career progression.
  • Make valuable connections with fellow researchers and industry professionals.
  • Alleviate some of the financial burden that often accompanies advanced degrees.

Also, remember to check with your advisor., as individual departments may also have additional opportunities to consider.
