Meet our Ambassadors
Learn what brought current graduate students to KU, how they fit into the School’s research and graduate programs, and what they recommend for students considering a graduate program at KU, through the Engineering Graduate Ambassadors profiled below.
Engineering research programs have a long and successful record of research collaboration promoted through independent and NSF multidisciplinary research centers that focus on common themes.
Labs and Computing Facilities
Engineering and computer science students pay an engineering fee per credit hour. These fees are channeled directly into services, facilities, materials and equipment that engineering and computer science students use every day. KU Engineering students have top facilities and tools to use 24/7 - 365.
The Engineering Career Center (ECC) hosts career fairs, promotes job and internship opportunities, provides workshops on career-related topics, provides resources for students to prepare for graduate school, and works with students individually to make sure that all students receive the best possible post-graduation resources.
A variety of professional development opportunities and resources are available for engineering graduate students. Many opportunities are available through the Graduate Engineering Association (GEA), a student organization which helps to facilitate workshops and events to enhance the graduate student experience while at KU.
