The University of Wisconsin is now accepting applications for the annual Opportunities in Engineering Conference (http://www.engr.wisc.edu/future/coe-opportunities-in-engineering.html). The conference objective is to increase the number of domestic engineering students (particularly those from underrepresented groups) receiving graduate degrees in engineering. This year’s conference is scheduled for November 7-10, 2012.
All expenses including travel, housing, and food are paid by the College of Engineering (with the exception of food for Saturday and Sunday). Applicants selected to participate will hear faculty research presentations, tour laboratories, meet with current graduate students and individually with faculty in the students area of interest, and tour the city of Madison as well as the UW campus. All applicants should be in their Junior or Senior year; students who have already completed a baccalaureate or Masters degree are encouraged to apply. Application deadline is Friday, September 28, 2012.
The Application is available here: https://sd3.engr.wisc.edu/oppsconf/OppsForm.php.
