Graduate Life

Graduate studies are all about balance. In addition to your coursework and research, perhaps you are teaching, raising a family, participating in leadership programs, presenting at conferences, or advising undergraduate students.

Whatever you are balancing, the Department of Architectural Engineering can help by providing you with the information and resources you need to succeed—in your graduate studies and for years to come.
