Graduate Student Testimonials

Diverse, I have made friends from all over the world here.

Mindful, the university looks after their students when it comes to transportation and living needs. The free bus system has made life much easier.

Balanced, they help strike that work-life balance by making sure there are a lot of events to attend. The concerts always have good musicians.

I feel like my experience at UCR has prepared me with hands on experience and taught me that engineering is a team sport. No one really works alone and working and consulting with others will result in a better project over all as everyone has different set of experiences and specialties.
Cody Simons
When working with Prof. Bir Bhanu, I was discussing my interest in working on neuroscience. His consideration of my passion was encouraging. Not only did he ensure I got to work on the project that I was passionate about by securing a collaboration for a project in brain tumors; the research statement is also very innovative and impactful. Additionally, his advise on how to approach research is inspiring. He emphasized on a combination of perfection, quality, creativity and hard work - to always aim to be the best person at what you do!
