Professional Development in any career is important to continually make one’s self better. In the context of GSDS, we co-sponsor seminars for various topics for current graduate students at UCSB. These seminars range in topic including producing the most effective presentation, alternative careers, and creating inclusive environments. We work closely with The Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships (CSEP), Technology Management Program (TMP), ConvEne IGERT, and DowMI to produce seminars to improve the student experience at UCSB and prepare for a life after Graduate School. Information about upcoming professional development seminars can be found here.
