Who will I be able to work for? Which faculty participate in the program?

The Engineering Physics program is open ALL faculty, however, they must have a project opening for which the academic requirements correspond to the physics, engineering, and mathematical components required by the EP program. The program's inherent flexibility appeals to both students and faculty. Students should look and think broadly about the opportunities the program allows. There is a list below of faculty that have previously participated.

Which faculty currently have an EP student working in his/her research group?

The best way to find out who currently has EP students in their group is look on our current student page.

How do I find an advisor?

Once admitted, students should contact the program directors. Each year opening in research groups vary. Faculty from SEAS, Arts and Science, and the Medical School who are interested often will contact the program directors. Admitted students may also contact interested faculty, but it is recommended that when doing so they contact the program directors as well.[top]
