November 09, 2012

The Mechanical Engineering Department is now accepting applications for the Low Carbon Energy Engineering Doctoral GAANN Fellowship.

Four fellowships will be awarded thru the Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) Program Award from the Department of Education. Students must enroll in the Energy Science and Engineering (ENSE) doctoral track focusing in the areas of fossil energy conversion, aerospace propulsion, carbon sequestration, renewable and alternative energy, and climate change research. Fellows in this program will learn about advanced engineering design of energy systems and the broader aspects of policy, economics and resource sustainability.

While conducting their research, each doctoral student will lead a team of 4 to 5 graduate and undergraduate students. The GAANN fellows will gain mastery of design review protocols and project management by working with their respective teams while developing their research.

Eligible applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, have an expressed interest in pursuing the Ph.D. degree and desire to obtain extensive training in technology, entrepreneurship and engineering leadership.
