Pathways to Success in Graduate Engineering:
This project aims to increase the graduate degree completion of Engineering students by encouraging and supporting low-income, high-achieving undergraduates with demonstrated financial need to pursue a Fast-Track Master’s degree in Engineering. The project focuses on the critical transition between undergraduate and graduate education. The project objectives are to: create an innovative, multi-faceted student support ecosystem which has financial, academic, and social facets; implement a mentoring structure to train students as researchers; and analyze the students' pursuit of, persistence in, and success in graduate education.
Leading the program is Patricia Nava, Ph.D., professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering and co-principal investigators Danielle Morales, Ph.D., assistant professor, Sociology and Anthropology and Miguel Velez-Reyes, Ph.D., professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering.
