Graduate Student Research

Students are encouraged to contact faculty directly if they want to do a collaborative research project.

Job Opportunities

Many local industries reach out to us to hire our students for employment. Employers send us their job postings each week which we pass along to our students. Our on-campus computer labs and the St. Thomas Information & Technology Services department often have job opportunities.
