Graduate Advising

Please Note: The Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas is offering a program leading to a Master of Science in Engineering Systems (MSES) to current students through the Summer 2014 semester. Effective Fall 2013, the program will be renamed Master of Science in Engineering Technology (MSET). See the MSET degree plans on our Master of Science information page.

Advising Appointments

Graduate advising in the Department of Engineering Technology is accomplished by the Graduate Program Committee.

To set up an advising appointment contact us at:

University of North Texas Discovery Park

Finding Research Groups & Research Advisors

Graduate students that choose the thesis option are expected to join a research group no later than the end of their first semester in the program. TA/RA recipients are required to choose the thesis option.

Non-thesis students are also encouraged to find their research advisors before the end of their first year in the program.

Degree Plans & Admission to Candidacy

All graduate students need to prepare a degree plan based on the department’s degree requirements and seek approval from the department and the college no later than the end of their second semester in the program. A student's degree plan is scheduled under the direction of a chosen major professor/advisor during the first semester of graduate study. When the degree plan is approved by the dean of the Toulouse Graduate School, the student is admitted to candidacy.
