Please see below for information about an excellent opportunity for LSAMP students who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees in engineering. This three day conference provides students with great information about faculty and their research programs. It also connects students with faculty whose research interests match the students’ interests. Students who are accepted to attend the conference will have all expenses paid, and will get directly connected to faculty researchers.
Please also be aware that UW-Madison intends to enroll a second cohort of Bridge to the Doctorate students in Fall 2017, so this conference will give students a direct link to UW-Madison engineering faculty as well as our thriving Graduate Engineering Research Scholars and Bridge to the Doctorate communities.
Each year the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison hosts “The Opportunities in Engineering Conference,” a three day preview event for graduate programs in the College of Engineering. This year’s conference is scheduled for October 22 – October 24, 2015. The conference gives selected students an opportunity to hear faculty research presentations, tour laboratories, meet with current graduate students and faculty in the students area of interest, and tour the city of Madison as well as the UW campus.
All expenses including travel, housing, and food (with the exception of food for Saturday and Sunday) are paid in full for student selected to participate. All applicants should be in their Junior or Senior year; Masters students interested in pursuing a PhD are also encouraged to apply. Application deadline is September 18, 2015.
