Information for Students

Current TAMU Students

If you are a student attending Texas A&M University in either the undergraduate or graduate programs, I am happy to schedule a time to meet with you.

Applying to Graduate School

I get quite a large number of email requests about applying to graduate school.  Often, I am afraid that I will not be able to reply, except perhaps in the case of some extremely strong applications. This does not indicate anything about your abilities, and simply means that I have been overwhelmed by emails. Please do not be discouraged by a lack of response.

My area of research falls in the intersection of electrical engineering, computer science, applied math and operations research. A good mathematical background is essential, and knowledge of the applied world is also useful. So a strong background in networking, communication, optimization or control is what I look for. If you do email me, please send your resume, and a copy of your transcripts as attachments.

Applying for an Internship

I do not plan on offering summer internships, except in the case of specific Texas A&M sponsored programs such as Research Experience for Undergraduates, and the TAMU-IIT Kanpur internship program. If you would like to work with me as a faculty mentor under such a program, please write to me describing your interests, along with your resume, and a copy of your transcripts as attachments.

Entrance Requirements

I do not directly take admissions decisions, so sending me your application materials and asking if you will be admitted is not a fruitful exercise. Information regarding graduate admission can be found on the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering website, and on the Texas A&M University website. To be admitted to the graduate program in Electrical and Computer Engineering, the applicant must hold a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, mathematics, or science from a college or university of recognized standing.

Consideration is given based on GRE scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation, experience, etc. Graduate requirements for a complete application include application form, application fee, official transcripts and records, test scores, and recommendations. More information can be obtained at the Office of Admissions, Texas A&M University.  Financial aid is provided on a competitive basis based on your application material.
