Note to Prospective Students

Graduate students:

If you are searching for an advisor for a graduate degree in Systems Engineering (on-campus or distance), please send me an email with the following:

  1. CV including any research products,
  2. A general research outline appropriate for the degree sought (MS or PhD),
  3. If you are interested in enrolling as a on-campus or distance student, and
  4. A statement of your application area of interest and how its associated design challenges align with my research interests.

My research interests are not confined to one particular application domain. Please send the requested materials if you feel the design challenges are relevant, particularly if the topic includes challenging aspects of system architecture synthesis, design optimization, dynamics/controls, model-based systems engineering, or all of the above. Please see the following items for the group's research interests and past work:

Undergraduate students:

I frequently have select projects for motivated undergraduates in the areas of modeling, optimization, and algorithms for engineering design. These projects typically require some coding experience (primarily done in MATLAB) but do not require a specific degree program (e.g., mechanical, electrical, civil, etc.). These projects will help develop broadly applicable research skills. Please see my research website for up-to-date project descriptions and how to inquire.
