How to Secure an Advisor
Review the faculty working in your area of interest
Contact the faculty of your choosing to gauge their interest in serving as your advisor and mentor. Be prepared to discuss your academic background and research interests.
M.S. coursework only and M.E. students do not need to secure an advisor prior to admission.
Securing an advisor does not automatically mean that funding is provided. A faculty member may elect to serve as an advisor and not provide financial support.
Important Role of Faculty Advisors
We are proud of our exceptional faculty who are committed to fostering a culture that will inspire you and challenge your thinking.
That commitment to excellence is important because when it comes to graduate school, it’s all about the people. As you’re deciding on a graduate program, it’s important to assess the credentials of the faculty so you can identify the right person to guide your journey.
Unlike your undergraduate education, you get to focus on the topics you’re most interested in. Learn from the best and advance your goals by choosing a faculty advisor who is a leader in your area of interest.
