Graduate School Workshop Series

EOE created a series of workshops to introduce undergraduate engineering students to the opportunities presented by obtaining a graduate degree. The workshops evolved from seminars created for EOE Texas Research Experience (TREX) participants into workshops open to all engineering students.

The one-hour workshops vary in topic to help students who are considering graduate school and those in the process of applying to graduate school. The workshops are held each Fall of the academic year.

Seminars are made possible thanks to our sponsors: the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC)and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

If you have requests for future workshop topics on considering graduate school or the graduate school application process, please contact the Program Coordinator at erica.martin@austin.utexas.edu.
