There are a very limited number of assistantships available within the College of Science, Engineering and Technology for students participating in the Computer Science, Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering programs. Full-time students should expect to work between fifteen and twenty hours a week during the academic term and if the award is for a calendar year, a similar effort (or an effort agreed upon with the supervisor) will be expected during the summer. To continue to receive such an award, the student should maintain a full-time status and maintain a 3.0 or above GPA.
There may be other types of awards including tuition-wavers and scholarships. Graduate students should understand any agreements entered into when receiving these awards.
We may be able to offer the following types of graduate assistantships to highly qualified candidates:
- Research Assistant: $19,500 - $25,000
- Teaching Assistant: $19,500 - $25,000
- Lab Assistant: $19,500 - $25,000
Each of these assistantships require the student to be enrolled full time. The student would be required to perform specified duties for an average of twenty hours per week.
The graduate assistant may apply for re-appointment at the end of the academic year and must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0.
