Graduate Program Directors and Faculty

Graduate Program Directors are Michigan Tech faculty members appointed to serve as the primary administrator and point of contact for individual graduate programs. Program Directors serve as the initial advisor for students accepted into their program. In the case of coursework programs, the Program Director will continue to serve as a student's advisor for the duration of the program.

Potential applicants may contact a Program Director for more information about specific graduate programs. Program Directors can provide students with an overview of the program, including the courses they will take and what will be expected of them if they are accepted.

The duties of Graduate Program Assistants may vary, but generally they provide administrative support to the Program Director. This page includes a listing of current Graduate Program Directors and Program Assistants, as well as links to a listing of program faculty.
