About the Symposium

The College of Engineering and Computer Science(CECS) Engineering Your Future: Graduate Admissions Diversity Symposium is a free event for current undergraduates and recent post-baccalaureate students who are underrepresented in the field of engineering and computer science and are interested in applying to graduate school.  Additionally, students interested in our graduate engineering, computer, and information science programs will have the opportunity to meet program directors and staff members to learn more about UM-Dearborn’s CECS programs and admission process.

The purpose of the event is to help increase students’ knowledge of the graduate admissions process and opportunities as well as support and encourage students to pursue graduate education in engineering, computer, and information science.  The event includes keynote speakers discussing their engineering path, breakout sessions on the graduate admission process, student leaders panel sharing their experiences, a diversity in engineering panel discussion with industry professionals, faculty and researchers. Topics for the panel will cover the engineering pipeline, overcoming fear, belonging, and handling shared academic and professional challenges faced.

The event is a collaboration between the University of Michigan-Dearborn CECS Graduate Education Office and the following CECS student organizations: National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).

The event is open to all students, staff, and faculty.
