About Graduate Programs

The College of Engineering is committed to bringing bright and innovative graduate students from diverse populations to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We offer graduate degrees in numerous academic areas in two locations: Lincoln on the City Campus and East Campus; and Omaha on the Scott Campus. The degree is awarded by the University of Nebraska. 

Our faculty receive funding from such corporate and governmental agencies as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Indy Racing League, U.S. Geological Survey, Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Railroad Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. 

The university supports students by offering a comprehensive professional development program that includes workshops for grant writing and management, publishing, curriculum vita and portfolio development, and interviewing skills. Students with teaching assistantships also access a wide range of resources supporting instructional development.
