We recommend PhD applicants contact faculty to find a research advisor BEFORE submitting the application. If we receive an application and there is no research advisor commitment, we will consider the applicant for the master’s program only. To learn more about the faculty research being conducted, a list of our most recent grants and faculty contact information can be found on our active grants page. Following are the simple steps to apply for the master’s programs in Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Denver. If you have any questions about the process, please contact the Office of Graduate Studies.

View graduate student assistance programs
Receive financial assistance while you pursue a master’s or doctoral degree by applying for a graduate teaching assistantship (GTA) or graduate research assistantship (GRA) position.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships
- GTAs are awarded by the Department.
- GTA applications are sent out with acceptance letters.
- Submit the GTA application as soon as possible to be considered for a GTA position in the following academic year.
- Specific information about application requirements can be found on our Graduate main page under “Financial Support.”
- International GTA applicants must demonstrate fluency in spoken English by scoring a minimum of 26 on the TOEFL (iBT) exam speaking section, an IELTS score of 8 on the speaking section, or a minimum of 50 on the Test of Spoken English (TSE). The speaking section of the iBT has replaced the TSE exam in most countries.
- International students should expect to be self-financed for at least their first year of attendance. GTA positions are not normally granted to first-year international graduate students. However, over 75% of our graduate students receive financial support.
Graduate Research Assistantships
- GRAs are awarded by individual faculty based on their available funding.
- To find out more about our individual faculty members and their research areas please visit the Ritchie School Active Grants list.
- Contact the faculty member you are interested in working with, directly, either by phone or by email.
- Students must show the faculty a competency in research and an interest in a particular research area in order to be considered for assistantships.
