Funding Opportunities

Numerous funding opportunities are available within the School. Our faculty and research staff have extensive research programs supported by external research funds from government grants and private industry. Our research expenditure exceeds $6.8 million per year. At over $300,000 per faculty member, this is the highest external funding level of any academic unit at Michigan Tech.

Graduate Assistantship Positions

It is recommended that interested students match their area of research interest with that of our faculty and contact the faculty member directly. Research funding is continuously being acquired. Faculty members choose which students to accept and where to allocate available funding. By establishing a relationship with a professor, you will increase the potential to be matched with an assistantship and research project.
