Information For Prospective Students

We, at the Herrick Laboratories, are eager to work with outstanding students who have earned their bachelor's or masters' degrees in engineering or related sciences. Opportunities are usually available for students to begin their studies in January, June, or August. A variety of forms of financial aid, including research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and fellowships, are available to highly qualified students.

Contact those faculty who research interests you by telephone or by  email. If you are able to come and visit, that would be wonderful.  Julayne Moser and her staff Cathy Elwell and Carol Glotzbach in the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Office can help put together a schedule for your visit, if you let them know the faculty you would like to meet.  Contact and other information  for the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Office can be found at
