Find the Right Match

Not all graduate programs are created equal!

Look carefully at the research and work being done at each university you’re considering. One university’s mechanical engineering department may focus on automotive and transportation, for example, while another focuses on biomechanics.

Select a graduate program that matches your interests and career goals. Before embarking on this journey, ask yourself:
  • Does research and discovery excite you?
  • Are you passionate about your field of study?
  • Do you want to answer questions that go beyond the classroom?
Take advantage of resources and experiences that can help you narrow down your interests:
  • Professors and graduate students
  • Internships
  • Volunteer experiences
  • Campus career center
  • Student organizations
  • Professional organizations/associations
  • Campus recruiters
