Engineering at Illinois is where the education and research infrastructure of the 21st century is built. Our graduate students are the best and brightest in the nation, trained to do the impossible every day for the good of humanity and the world we live in.
Their success and impact reflect on Illinois long after graduation.
Join us for a poster session on Friday, April 14, from 4-5:30 pm in the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) Lobby as we celebrate the achievements and future career goals of the graduate students participating in the 2016-17 Illinois Female Engineering in Academia Training (iFEAT) and the Mavis Future Faculty Fellows (MF3) programs.
Opening remarks will be given by Rohit Bhargava, Founder Professor in Bioengineering and Bliss Faculty Scholar, and Harry Dankowicz, Associate Dean of Graduate, Professional and Online Programs.
The iFEAT program aims to prepare and inspire female engineering doctoral student and postdocs to pursue academic careers, through participation in professional development seminars, faculty-directed individual development meetings, and peer review groups.
The MF3 program is a competitive one-year professional development program for senior engineering doctoral students that facilitates the training of the next generation of engineering faculty in research, teaching, and mentoring through workshops, seminars, and practice.
Please RSVP by April 4, 2017.
