Explore Grad Studies in CSE Workshop

students working at computers

Have you considered applying to graduate school, but don’t know where to start? Join a group of successful graduate students and faculty for some help figuring it all out, and explore whether graduate study in computation is for you! 

Students from all institutions are invited to apply to a virtual one-day workshop hosted by Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. Participants will learn what faculty look for on a grad school application, what day to day life is like while you’re getting a PhD, and what kinds of jobs (research or otherwise) your studies will prepare you for.

The event took place Saturday, September 16, 2023. The workshop is generally held once a year.
