Funding Opportunities

Graduate student funding generally comes through fellowships, research projects, and teaching assistantships. The College of Engineering hosts a brief overview of the process here.  For Industrial Engineering, most this funding is determined as part of the application process. As such, if a student does not have an offer of funding through the application process, he or she will have to arrange for his or her own funding.

While it is rare, unsupported students may have an opportunity to be considered for a TA position. Interested students should email their resumes - along with a list of courses for which they believe they would be a good TA - to Dr. Patrick Brunese, IE Assistant Department Head. Please do not ask faculty for recommendations relative to TA positions unless the faculty has previous knowledge of your capabilities.    

IE students are welcome to apply for TA opportunities in other departments as well. We find many student are successful finding positions in EEE, ENE, Biology, Chemistry, Math, First Year Engineering, Foreign Languages, and Physics.
