Develop yourself to be the best you can be!

Current graduate students are invited to participate in professional development workshops, student competitions, and training sessions in order to develop skills essential not only in graduate school but also in the current work place. Participating in these events offers an ideal opportunity to network with industry leaders and other graduate students and grow both personally and professionally. 

Upcoming Professional Development Workshops

There are currently no professional development workshops scheduled. Please be on the lookout for registration information for our Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 series late this summer. Don't forget, resources from previous professional development workshops are included in the table below.
