Graduate students play a critical role in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science's community of researchers and scholars. Our graduate students are creating new knowledge, conducting groundbreaking research and making meaningful contributions in our classrooms and facilities.
Together with some of the world's finest engineering faculty, graduate students collaborate across traditional boundaries on projects that have far-reaching applications in areas such as health care, the environment, energy, structural safety and telecommunications. The College's distinguished faculty includes 10 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 13 recipients of Faculty Early Career Development Awards (CAREER) from the National Science Foundation. Two of these CAREER Award winners were also honored with the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers.
Graduate students at Lehigh also have access to some of the top facilities and instrumentation in their fields. Our microscopy center, the Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, is widely regarded as one of the top two nanocharacterization facilities in the Western Hemisphere. Twelve orders of magnitude larger is our Engineering Research Center for Advanced Technology and Large Structural Systems (ATLSS), where researchers work to understand and mitigate the impact of earthquakes and other phenomena upon bridges and buildings.
