Dr. Krishna M. Pasala Memorial Scholarship
Annual scholarship that recognizes the academic excellence of one graduate student in the University of Dayton Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  

Electro-optics Assistantships
The electro-optics program offers two types of assistantships: teaching and research. The teaching assistantships are usually done in collaboration with the physics department. Research assistantships are given based on a student's research interest. Each assistantship may include a stipend and tuition remission. Most assistantship contracts are given for a year or less and vary in funding. Indicate your interest in an assistantship when completing page two of the Application for Graduate Admission online. For more details, please contact the electro-optics program.
