Other important information


Jheng Zhao and Butch

"Our campus is beautiful and quiet, which helps me relax after experiments. The faculty, staff and students are very friendly and open-minded. I can get my problems solved quickly because of the low student-to-teacher ratio. As a mechanical engineering student, I enjoy doing experiments in our world-class laboratories and collaborating with others. On top of that, the rich activities organized by the Office of Student Involvement, such as hiking, bowling and soccer, are really fun and exciting."

—Jheng Zhao, international student, M.S., mechanical engineering
