Graduate Studies

We have several viable tracks for pursuing a MS degree.  The first option is a coursework-only degree.  Typically, students take one or two courses a semester (at night) while they are working full time. Alternatively, the curriculum can be compressed such that a student finishes 30 credits of graduate coursework in 3 semesters (plus a summer). The second option is a full time student pursuing a thesis-based degree.  I have had a student finish this as quickly as 16 months, but 21 to 24 months is more typical to complete the thesis.

I advise or co-advise students who are pursue thesis-based MS or Ph.D. degress with topics that align with both my Mechancis and Materials track and my Energy and Infrastructure track. Please note, these terms are my own, and are not part of the official Rowan CEE graduate program notation.  Students working on a thesis-based degrees for me have been partially funded or fully funded.  Partially funded students have recieved a research fellowship from the College of Engineering.  Those who are fully funded have been either a teaching fellow through our department or a research assistant funded by a research grant. 

If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies under my direction, please apply to the graduate program, and sculpt your statement of purpose toward my research interests.  Once you are accepted, we can discuss opportunities.  Typically, I do not respond to requests from potential students prior to their gaining admission to the CEE department at Rowan.
