Fall 2020 EE and CE Graduate Student Orientation

This year’s EE and CE Graduate Student Orientation was held online due to COVID-19. Instead of convening in person, students heard welcoming presentations and interacted with current students, faculty, and staff online.

Incoming students learned about the EE/CE programs, career services, and the myriad of opportunities open to them. This included exploring the diversity of courses offered by the Electrical Engineering Department across multiple engineering research areas.

The Orientation program also included presentations by faculty about academics and research, as well as opportunities for newcomers to meet and make personal connections with staff. 

After the presentations, the students were invited to participate in 7 different Q&A sessions with faculty from each one of the 7 research areas that the department offers: 

Although face to face interactions are still not possible at CU, the staff introduced themselves through a welcome video.

The Orientation program concluded with one-on-one virtual meetings for new students with their faculty advisors.

Welcome new graduate students!
