Graduate Research

If you are interested in heat and mass transfer processes, sensor development, microfabrication, or energy systems, you are encouraged to contact Dr. Brian Iverson regarding your interest and qualifications in performing graduate work. Successful applicants will:

  • Meet the requirements for acceptance into the BYU Mechanical Engineering program (link)
  • Have performed well in thermal science classes (thermo, fluids, heat transfer)
  • Send a resume and transcript (unofficial is ok) to Dr. Brian Iverson

Undergraduate Research

We regularly involve undergraduates in our research to the extent possible. Students performing undergraduate research often begin by volunteering time or performing an independent study class for credit. Others may be paid when funding allows. These opportunities can develop into significant research experiences and may offer the possibility of publishing as an undergraduate. Successful applicants will:

  • Be a student in good standing
  • Have an excellent academic record
  • Send a resume and transcript (unofficial is ok) to Dr. Brian Iverson
