What are the responsibilities of a graduate student in the MSE program?

Pursuing a research degree such as the MS or PhD means that you will be dividing your time and effort between classroom and research activities. Both activities contribute to your learning experience and neither should be neglected. You are responsible for making satisfactory progress in both the classroom and your research project throughout your educational experience.  If you are funded under a GTA position, then you may also have responsibilities involving grading or teaching activities.
