The following requirements apply to this program:

  • Must apply and be accepted into the program
  • Students will be required to be in Good Academic Standing in the College of Engineering in Applied Science to apply for a position.
    • This means that degree-seeking students should be meeting CU cumulative, semester, and major GPAs of at least 2.250
  • Must reply to offer and accept offer
  • Must attend introductory meeting in the fall
  • Must take online Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct training
  • Must work as directed by faculty member and/or graduate student mentor and make a good-faith effort to work 10 hours/week spring and fall semester
  • Must attend three seminars for the year
  • Must attend bi-monthly cluster meetings with assigned graduate mentor in both the fall and spring semesters
  • Must write a two- to three-page Project Summary due at the end of October outlining your plans for work
  • Must present a PowerPoint Presentation in their Cluster in March
  • Must participate in the Research Symposium in mid‐April
  • Must complete surveys regarding your experiences in the program

  • Submit a professional cover letter and resume detailing your qualifications for the research positions
  • Respond in your cover letter to any requirements mentioned in the project listing - e.g., if the project says you must have taken Material and Energy Balance, tell me that you have done so
  • Select a diversity of projects – be sure they are ones of interest to you, but try not to select three from one faculty member as we may not give more than one student to each professor
  • Select five projects – if you are only interested in one or two, then by all means don’t apply for ones that are not interesting to you, however, applying to five will allow me maximum flexibility when considering you for a position.
  • Contact the professor offering the project to learn more about it and see if it is a good match. If you ask intelligent questions and make a good impression, the faculty member may ask for you. All things being equal, it will generally improve your chances, as we like to give this opportunity to as many students as possible.

  • Students will be required to be in Good Academic Standing in the College of Engineering in Applied Science to apply for a position.
