You know what you want the future to look like. Now
it’s a matter of making it happen.
Graduate studies may be the step that will help you
achieve those goals.
Study at the Master’s and PhD levels provides
you with the opportunity to pursue specialized knowledge,
collaborate with industry and research organizations
on real-world projects, and gain access to expertise,
funding and state-of-the-art facilities.
Graduate degrees can open doors to a wide variety
of senior-level positions in industry, government,
and academia, at home and abroad, which are intellectually
and personally rewarding. These positions may
be oriented to research, management, teaching, or all
Many of our students have noted that graduate study

advisors and collaborators. And you are much
more in control of your time. It’s more
like a job. In fact, you can actually get paid
as a graduate student.
