Professional Development Activities

Wednesday, 1:00-2:00pm
Title: Student Professional Development Session
Organizer: Dr. Bonnie Ferri

Abstract: This one-hour session is an interactive workshop for developing communication skills needed for being effective in research and in careers. The focus will be perfecting short research descriptions, otherwise known as “elevator pitches”, and sharpening networking skills. Both skills are very effective in helping students to present their work, obtain jobs, and make connections with potential sponsors, colleagues, and collaborators.

Student Travel Grants

All travel funds have been allocated.

Student Networking

Thursday, 4:30-5:30pm
Title: Student Networking Event
Organizer: Energy Systems Technical Committee Student Liaisons

Abstract: This one-hour session is a networking event designed to introduce students to professionals in industry, academia, and national labs. Students, in small groups, will be given the opportunity to have structured conversations with three different members of the control community and ask any questions they may have. This will be a valuable opportunity to make connections and learn more about future career paths. Attendance is limited to the first 60 students to sign up. Sign up here.
