Bourns College of Engineering Hosts GEM Gradlab

September 23, 2013

Bourns College of Engineering will be hosting the GEM Gradlab at UC Riverside. The Gradlab is free and we will provide a catered breakfast, lunch as well as door prizes. This is the only lab being held here on the west coast. Space is limited so please register today.

Please join us for the GEM GRAD Lab sponsored by University of California - Riverside on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

The GRAD Lab is a fun, engaging (and free!) symposium where participants, science and engineering undergraduates, will receive full information on the importance of graduate school and what is needed to successfully gain admittance with financial support.

Speakers will range from current graduate students to University faculty and senior administrators. They are selected from diverse communities and disciplines to present on the following topics:

  • "Why Graduate School"
  • "How to Prepare for Graduate School"
  • "Understanding the GEM Fellowship", and
  • "Voices From the Field: Real Life Research and Internship Experiences"

GRAD Lab encourages young people to consider graduate engineering or science education and applying for the GEM fellowship. Focusing on the global importance of research and innovation, life-long career benefits, and real world role models the symposium will help each student envision his or her future as a technology leader, successfully apply for a GEM fellowship, and gain entry to a graduate program.
