Graduate Research and Teaching Assistantships (GRA/GTA) are awarded on a competitive basis. The GTA or GRA cannot be awarded to probationary or provisional students. In addition, GTAs are not usually awarded the first semester.
Graduate Research Assistantship
Graduate Research Assistantships are awarded at the discretion of individual faculty members and are subject to available funding. They are very competitive and are typically obtained by contacting the professor once you are on campus, enrolled as a full-time graduate student.
Graduate Teaching Assistantship
Outstanding students in the electrical engineering program are eligible to apply for graduate teaching assistantships. In addition to a monthly salary, EE GTAs are entitled to in-state tuition rates. These positions are highly competitive and the selection process is comprehensive. Only a small percentage of applicants will be appointed. Final appointments will be determined by the needs of the department.
