Our Students

A diverse student body is fundamental to the academic mission to provide multiple views and perspectives that enhance the teaching, research and development of new knowledge. The TECS faculty members mentor about 60 master’s and 90 doctoral students who hail from all over the globe including: Bangladesh, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, UK, the U.S. and more. The TECS department takes great effort to enhance the educational experience of students from all communities, including those groups underrepresented in graduate education. This leads to a diverse community consisting of people with varied characteristics, ideas and world views whose interactions both benefit and challenge each other to grow while making the entire community better.
