Two MSE students, Daniel Ranke, undergraduate, and Emily Ryan, graduate, were awarded the highly prized National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship (NDSEG).

Since program inception, over 4,000 fellowships have been awarded and over 60,000 applications received. DoD plans to award new three-year graduate fellowships each fiscal year (subject to the availability of funds) to individuals who have demonstrated ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.
