Projects, outreach, competitions, conferences, etc.:

Our main event is the Graduate Engineering Research Showcase which is a college-wide competition held every fall semester. It allows graduate students to showcase their research to a broad audience while providing them with the opportunity to improve their presentation/communication skills.

We also host ice cream socials, tailgates, the Finish in Five competition, as well as Lab Tours throughout the different lab/research facilities in the College of Engineering.

CEGS has partnered with the Corporate Relations Office in the Dean's Office with the intentions of starting a new event tailored to graduate engineering students. The first iteration of this event (Feb 11, 2019) will feature an intro by each of the companies followed by round table interviews between recruiters and companies.
