The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering works closely with Career Services to develop opportunities for internships and for cooperative education (Co-Op) programs. Internships with industries throughout the central U.S. are available to qualified students sophomore through senior level. Co-Op activities allow students to alternate working semesters with scholastic semesters throughout their upper-division tenure.
Financial assistance to qualified graduate students is available from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and from other sources. The School awards scholarships, graduate teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. Students desiring financial assistance are encouraged to contact the Graduate Program Assistant of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and complete an application. During the month of February each year, an online RA/TA/scholarship application is available and announced on the ECE homepage for awards and appointments that will be determined for the following academic year.
Awards range from $9,600 to $28,800 per year for half-time (20 hours per week) appointments. Half-time research and teaching assistantships include waiver of out-of-state tuition and waiver of seven hours of in-state tuition. Students must enroll in six credit hours per semester to qualify.
