Graduate Program

Welcome to the Virtual Graduate Visitation Week 2021

Welcome to our Department’s virtual visitation event! Below you can find a welcome to our Department and its facilities from our Chair, Dr. Greg Szulczewski, an introduction to the graduate program and resources for graduate students with Dr. Patrick Frantom, our Director of Graduate Studies, and video introductions to each research group in our department from our faculty. We hope that these will provide a more personal connection to us and inform you on our current research interests.

If you would like more information, peruse the links in the gray navigation bar above. For instance, navigate to People -> Graduate Students to acquaint yourself with our current graduate students.

We also look forward to seeing you online on Saturday, February 13 for our live virtual event (via Zoom). An overall schedule for the live event can be found below. The detailed schedule for individual meetings with faculty is being developed and will be shared in the next few days.
