The ECE Department attempts to support all full-time graduate students at the Ph.D. level. Financial support is available to Ph.D. students in the form of fellowships, teaching assistantships and graduate student research assistantships (GSR). Funds to support travel to professional conferences are also available.
The most common form of support for Ph.D. students is a half-time (20 hours per week) GSR that provides a salary, plus tuition and fees.
Departmental financial support is generally not offered to students at the M.S. level.
