Graduate Admissions Decisions
Our Graduate Admissions Committee is working through our large pool of applications. The batch of applications for Fall 2013 was very competitive. In fact, the pool was one of the most, if not the most, competitive pool we’ve ever had. The committee offers its congratulations to those who have been offered admission. If you have not received a decision yet, your decision will be sent out very soon. The committee ensures that each application receives a complete review before the decision is released.
If you have already been offered admission, you are welcome to begin contacting our faculty to inquire about research assistantship openings. Email is generally the best way to contact our faculty. The faculty hiring process will take place now through September. The faculty members have access to your application materials. Faculty will also find out about their funding outlook for the coming year during this timeframe, so they may not be able to respond to you right away (i.e., they may be waiting a confirmation on the number of students they can hire). Please note that, although many faculty cannot make financial commitments six months ahead of the semester, your admission is guaranteed and is not contingent on concluding arrangements with an advisor now.
Congratulations, again! Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about MechSE.
