Grad Tools

Earning a graduate degree in engineering takes several years of classes and seminars, with a massive research paper-the dissertation-as the final hurdle. For some students, the enormity of it can be overwhelming. At the same time, graduate engineering students have many viable career options and professional opportunities to explore. The Engineering GRAD TOOLS site will assist in keeping you informed and engaged with the broader engineering and non-engineering community outside of your department. The website is continuously changing due to new campus events and opportunities. Therefore, please continue to revisit the site as new information is added.
