The University of Wisconsin is now accepting applications for the annual Opportunities in Engineering Conference. All expenses including travel and room and board are paid by the College of Engineering. Applicants selected to participate will hear faculty research presentations, tour laboratories, meet with graduate students and individually with faculty in their area of interest, and tour the city of Madison as well as the UW campus.
The conference objective is to increase the number of domestic engineering students receiving graduate degrees in engineering, particularly those from underrepresented groups. This year's conference is scheduled for October 30-November 2, 2013.
The deadline to apply is Friday, September 20, 2013:https://sd3.engr.wisc.edu/oppsconf/OppsForm.php
