MEng Pro Dev Seminar Series

Congratulations! You are on your way to completing your Master’s degree program at Boston University. Your newly acquired technical and leadership skills will move you closer to achieving your professional and personal goals. But by themselves, in today's economy, they simply will not guarantee you a job.

This hands-on seminar and workshop series, exclusively for Master’s students, will provide you with the special skills, strategies, and secrets to find and secure that ideal professional position.

Every two weeks, we explore two different dimensions of the professional development process through lecture, exercise and discussion. Guest speakers will be featured throughout. Each seminar event is also a chance to socialize with your fellow master’s students. We will meet from 6:00 to 8:00pm every other Thursday in PHO 203, 15 St. Mary’s Street. Advance Registration is required.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity! Get Your Degree to Work!
