Course Information, Winter 2012

Course Hours: W 11:30-12:20
Location: EEB 031 (Note the new room!)

Course description:
Have you thought about life after graduation? Consider graduate school. Offered in Winter 2012, ENGR498B will demystify the grad school process and help you think about whether it is a good option for you. Learn what it's really like to be a grad student, what sort of work you can expect to do while you're in grad school, and what opportunities will be open to you after grad school. Find out how to choose schools to apply to, how to make your application as strong as possible, and how you can get your education paid for. We'll address the GREs, letters of recommendation, and ways to get an undergraduate research experience. This course is open to all undergraduates interested in engineering, but is particularly targeted at sophomores and juniors. We especially encourage students from underrepresented groups to enroll, including women, minorities, and students with disabilities.

Grading Policy
This course is offered CR/NC only. Credit will be given to students who miss no more than one class meeting and complete all assignments.
