Students are expected to attend the Undergraduate Seminar each term during their sophomore, junior, and senior years.

The seminar presents topics that are not discussed in regular courses but are of importance to the academic and professional development of undergraduate students. Examples of these topics include advising, how and where engineers work, and methods for career development, ethical concerns, and opportunities for engineers in medicine, law, and other professions.

Speakers from within and outside the University community provide different perspectives on these issues that are critical to the professional success of students. The seminar meets for one hour per week during each fall and spring term. Students are required to enroll in and attend the seminar each fall and spring term they are on campus.
