Both Syracuse University and the College of Engineering and Computer Science are invested in your success. There are several universitywide organizations and administrative offices available to assist graduate students in meeting the academic, personal, and professional challenges related to being a student in engineering and computer science.

Career services

The Engineering and Computer Science Graduate Student Organization (ECS-GSO) is a great resource for connecting students with their peers and finding opportunities to network and build relationships.

The Graduate School website outlines a number of the campus-wide resources that are available to support graduate students:

  • Academic resources are available to connect you to resources like a subject-matter expert librarian or IT support.
  • Teaching resources can help guide you to the information you need if you are serving as a TAs or in other instructional capacities.
  • Research resources connect you to information related to pursuing research at the graduate level and preparing for a career in research.
  • Office of Professional and Career Development offers comprehensive workshops, hands-on labs, and individual appointments that address the many facets of life as a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar.
  • Mentoring resources can help you plan your professional growth and development.
  • Graduate School program videos make past Graduate School programming available at the click of a mouse.
  • Wellness and family resources promote mental, physical, and emotional health for graduate students with and without families.
