MSE graduate student ay microscopeGraduate research assistantships typically support qualified Ph.D. students. Graduate fellowships are available on a competitive basis to both entering and continuing Ph.D. students. Typically only those Ph.D. students who enter the program in the Fall semester are eligible for fellowships. If you are admitted and enrolled in the Fall semester, it is an expectation that a first year student will receive financial support from the department during the first semester. In the second semester of the first year (and future semesters), a student will join a group and receive financial support from a faculty advisor.

We are unable to provide financial support to students in our masters degree program, or to students in the M.Eng or Certificate programs.
