The Center for Applied Biomechanics welcomes applications from outstanding students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a research focus in automobile safety or applied biomechanics. In some cases, students interested in graduate programs in Biomedical Engineering, Applied Mechanics, or other technical fields may also be considered. Information and application materials can be found at the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering graduate admissions webpage.
Graduate students at the Center for Applied Biomechanics are typically funded under graduate research assistantships and work on projects sponsored by government or industrial groups. Teaching assistantships and, in exceptional cases, university fellowships may occasionally be available. Students with external funding to support their graduate studies (for example, through the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program, the NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program, or employer education programs) are strongly encouraged to apply. Our graduate students receive full tuition coverage, health insurance, and a competitive stipend.
