  1. I'm applying for a summer research program in bioengineering (BE) to see if I want a PhD in BE. For the program, one lab asks for a CV. I do not have any prior research experience in BE, however I have been attending weekly talks to learn topics in BE. The summer research program will provide us fundamentals of BE research so no prior research experience is needed. I will get my master's in cell biology and entrepreneurship in 2021. What does a BE lab look for in our CV?
  2. Hi all, I'm updating my resume for my Mechanical Engineering PhD applications. When looking for industry jobs I always highlighted that I'm an "active team player" in my summary statement, even though I have had multiple experiences working both independently and in a team. From what I hear, grad school encompasses both teamwork and independence. I'm working to include both attributes in my statement, but which do you recommend I stress more? Thanks!
  3. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science pro
  4. I was admitted into the Engineering Ph.D program in Texas A&M University in the end of February and just received funding offer last week. The funding is in term of fellowship and its not so interested: $3000 and out of state tuition waiver, I still have to pay the in state tuition :(. As my background is not so good, this offer is in my expectation. This was the first time I applied for Ph.D admission and Texas A&M was the only school I applied for this Fall 2020 due to my limited application budget. I can say that it is difficult to decline this offer as it is my only choice. As
  5. Hello everyone! Since most of us are almost towards the end of applications, I thought it'll be a good time to start this thread. As a continuation of @IceCream & MatSci's post last year, I thought this could be helpful. So those of you who are applying for Materials Science and Engineering programs for Fall 2020, this is your place to share and talk to fellow aspirants! (It won't be wrong to call this a 'support group' now, would it?) Feel free to post your credentials, and results using the following format! Undergrad Institution (approx. rank/reputation in STEM): Major
  6. I’m applying for a masters degree at UConn in mechanical engineering (not a top tier school). I have a 3.6 GPA and a B.S. degree from Rutgers and I’ve had a couple internships at well known companies and I have a full time job at Pratt & Whitney. I do however have 3 Ws on my transcript (non major related dropped for health and financial reasons) and I have 2 C+‘s and 2 C’s. However half these are in non major courses. Will these hurt my chances assuming my GRE is solid and letters of rec are as well?
  7. I have 3.67 GPA at Rutgers in Materials Engineering and I plan on going to UConn for a masters in Mechanical Engineering since my job after graduation is more aerospace and mechanical engineering ( I am working for Pratt & Whitney) and I am more interested in the crossovers between MechE and MSE. However I have some W's on my transcript. One was a Matlab course my freshmen year I took that I hated and dropped a week after the withdrawal deadline (wasn't needed for my major). Another was during my junior year when I did a full time internship and this was an elective in industrial engineeri
  8. I am an undergraduate student and will be applying to Electrical Engineering PhD programs this fall. I am aiming for really top schools like Caltech, Stanford, MIT, UC Berkeley (not because of their rank but also because of the professors there). I recently took GRE and got 166Q/164V/5.0 AWA. Given that average quantitative GRE scores for these schools are 168Q, should I retake the GRE to be able to get into these schools? My GPA is 3.95, and I have 1 conference publication,1 submitted journal publication in review (not accepted yet), and two poster presentations at two conferences (
  9. Hi! I am planning to apply masters program in Engineering this year. The question is I do not know which engineering area is interesting me. Now I am studying at 3rd year and majoring at B.Eng. in Construction and Civil Engineering. To be more detailed, my specialization will be translated into English as "Manufacturing of building materials, products and structures", so it is closely to Materials Science. Today I searched some universities in Canada and find that Civil Engineering is divided to another specialist as Transportation, Mining, Environmental, etc Engineering and this inf

  11. Hi I am from a developing country and I got a scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in the U.S. but I failed some courses and I got dismissed. I continued my program in another campus, still in the U.S. but it didn’t work as I wish. Again, I failed some courses but I could not repeat those. The problem was my sponsor. They could not give me another funding to repeat those courses so I had to go home. I realized that I was lack of academic training particularly on courses that I failed. I am applying to other Master in Chemical Engineering because I already have some credit fr
  12. I am currently considering between these choices: - UC Berkeley Mechanical Engineering (Product Design/ Controls) [https://me.berkeley.edu/graduate/meng/] - Penn Robotics [https://www.grasp.upenn.edu/academics/masters] - Cornell Engineering Management [https://www.engmanagement.cornell.edu/em] My background is in Mechanical Engineering from a top 5 undergraduate school. Mainly hope to develop a deep specialization in robotics, controls, design for manufacturability, hardware systems development on the technical side, and take 2-3 management courses from the business school.
  13. Hi everyone! I have seen this sort of forum for other disciplines, so I thought it might be nice to have this for engineering students wanting to applying to graduate school at some point. My advice would be this: 1. Don't undervalue for GRE scores, especially your quant scores. I hate the GRE with a passion because I suck at standardized tests that are there to trick you and steal your money, but it is a part of the application process, so it is important to schools somewhat. I think my average quant score did not make me standout, but I also had other things going for me, so I don'
  14. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four. I understand the program reputation and advisor/professor quality outweighs school reputation but I'm stuck on finding out how to compare those things. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically
  15. I think I've narrowed my options down to two which I think would be the best fits for me. Both are top ten schools and have offered similar funding with no need to TA. Here's the pro's and con's of both for me: Purdue Pros: Multiple great PI possibilities, all have interesting research West Lafayette has a relatively cheap cost of living Purdue Cons: No one works in the field I was planning to pursue City is small and not close to much Michigan Pros: Great PI who works in field I was planning to pursue Nice city (Ann Arbor) Close to home
  16. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four to find a balance between course quality and reputation. Course quality so I actually learn something useful and reputation so it helps me look more impressive compared to other equally qualified job applicants. I will most likely
  17. Did any international student get admit from the UC Berkeley's Chemical Engineering - PDP program ? If yes, please share when did you get the admit and did the portal status change ? Does anyone know if the admissions are in waves or it's a one shot process ? Previous years applicants, please help.
  18. Hello, I got admitted to Rice PhD engineering program and to Virginia Tech PhD engineering program. Both fully funded however, I can have much better life with rice stipend compared to VT's where I can just survive. Here is my question, the adviser for Rice is very young he graduated in 2018 from top 5 school, he is very nice with five papers, two of them are published in nature journal. Also, his lab is concerned with exactly the area that I desire and want to do research in. On the other hand the adviser in VT is became a full professor 3 years ago, he is not one of the nicest peo
  19. Hello everyone, Figured I would make an account to continue in the time-honored tradition of collective freak-outs in the month leading up to graduate admissions. Do you know of any school that has already sent out admission results to PhD applicants in chemical engineering for the fall 2019 season? If you've gained admission to a specific school, would you mind sharing your profile (GPA, GRE, TOEFL if you're an international, research experience, and so on)? Thank you and may the odds be ever in your favor!
  20. Hi everyone. I'm planning to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering for a Spring term intake. Therefore, I contacted via e-mail some US universities that accept Spring admissions (I checked it on their websites). However, most of those universities said that "very few students are admitted for Spring", "we admit for Spring only if there are available spots" or "if a professor requests a Spring admission for a certain student, we can consider it". Based on all these answers, I understand that most of those universities does not have a cohort for Spring admitted students, but can
  21. Does anyone have news on admission for 2019 session?
  22. Hi everyone, I haven't seen any discussion of Aerospace Engineering applications (MS and PhD) for Fall 2019 so I thought I could get us started. Excited to hear from you all! :)
  23. Hey everyone. I recently graduated this semester. My plan is to work for two years in order to save up money for a masters program. Right now I have my sight set on the masters program at University of Houston in ME/Aerospace Engineering. However, I am in a bit of a predicament. I graduated with a BS in physics from the University of Texas at Austin. My GPA was low. I got a 2.94 gpa on 63 credit hours. I only had 63 credit hours since I transferred from the University of Texas at San Antonio. My GPA there was a 3.78 on almost 80 hours. However, when you combine the GPAs, it comes out to 3.42.
  24. Hi all! Do you suggesting trying out TAing even if it is not required? As of right now, I don't want to be a teacher in the future, but I am still curious about it. What do you all suggest?
  25. Hi all! I just got back from a visit at the University of Michigan. If anyone has any questions pertaining to Ann Arbor, the University, or its biomedical department (or engineering in general), please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer based on all the info. I gained while I was there.
