Group of diverse students and professionals at 2015 Student Professional Development Workshop

Student Professional Develop Workshops provide undergraduate and masters level computer science students with the unique opportunity to receive coaching and development from Industry professionals.

Details about the workshops are given below:

  • Target audience: underrepresented minority students with 3.0 or higher GPA (African-American, Hispanic and Native American/Native Alaskan/Native Hawaiian, students with disabilities).
  • Networking with industry professionals, who keynote sessions and serve as workshop panelists.
  • Learning best practices for preparing for the rigors of the interview process.
  • Attending engaging workshop sessions on resume writing, interview skills, professionalism, and networking.
