Graduate STEM Degrees: Preparing an Effective Application

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 1:30PM - 3:00PM



This workshop will focus on graduate programs in engineering and computer science considering opportunities in STEM programs including cyber security, preparing an effective application, funding, and employment. There is a high demand for qualified candidates, but getting the job you want requires having the necessary skills. “Most cybersecurity bachelor’s programs don’t teach leadership skills or provide managerial training. As part of your master’s program, you’d be exposed to those important business tools and learn how to lead a team. These are essential qualities and skills if you want to advance in the cybersecurity field and land those senior positions.” (ClearanceJobs.com/Feb. 1, 2016: 8 Reasons to Get Your Master’s Degree in Cybersecurity).

This workshop is limited to 30 people.

Workshop Organizers:
