Grad School Info Night

The Graduate School Info Night is a near annual event that we organize to inform Engineering and Science students on various aspects of Graduate School, including:
  • Why go to grad school
  • Research opportunities
  • How to pay for it
  • Applying
  • Canada, US, and the World
The format of the evening generally consists of several speakers who will speak on particular topics above, as well as a Q&A panel composed of current/future graduate students.
