All PhD students in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering are fully funded.

Research and Teaching Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are available to academically qualified students and provide a stipend and tuition scholarships. Assistantships usually require 15 to 20 hours per week in a teaching or research role depending on department or faculty needs. Summer opportunities are also available, providing valuable experience as well as additional financial support. New students should indicate they wish to be considered for a graduate assistantship on their application. Continuing students should speak with their academic advisor or the director of graduate studies to be considered for funding. 

Tuition Scholarships

Students who receive graduate assistantships are provided with a tuition scholarship for each semester they receive an assistantship. The scholarship covers the minimum number of credits necessary to maintain full time status (typically, 9 credits or less per semester) and is limited to courses that can be applied to the ISE degree. In some cases tuition scholarships may be provided to students who do not hold an assistantship. Contact the graduate director for details.
