The ECE Department attempts to support all full-time graduate students at the PhD level. Financial support is available to PhD students in the form of fellowships, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. Funds to support travel to professional conferences are also available.
The most common form of support for PhD students is a half-time (20 hours per week) graduate student research assistantship (GSR) that provides a salary, plus tuition and fees.
Departmental financial support is generally not offered to students at the Master's level.
