Graduate assistantships and research assistantships are available in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department. For a graduate assistantship or a graduate research assistantship, 20 hours of work per week during the whole semester is expected. The department also offers a limited number of Graduate Recruitment Scholarship (GRS) contracts which require 6 hours of work per week.
Questions concerning these may be directed to the ISE Graduate Chair or the Department Chair. Department needs, special skills and capabilities of the applicants and the availability of funds will determine to whom such awards are made.
International students should be aware that the ability to communicate in oral (Ohio Speak Test) and written form is a primary factor considered in the awarding of teaching assistantships.
Teaching assistantships, research assistantships and tuition scholarships are available to students who have an earned undergraduate GPA of 3.00 or above or have a 3.33 average or better on graduate course work.
Students who are on academic probation, taking courses in the Ohio Program in Intensive English, or who have been admitted conditionally are not eligible for appointment to graduate assistantships.Beyond the first semester, continuation of assistantships will depend upon students progressing satisfactorily towards completion of their degrees and also availability of funds.
