James Allen Anderson Seminar Series: Purpose, Path & Funding for Graduate Studies in Nuclear Engineering

The decision to pursue graduate studies is momentous and several variables need to me taken into account. This seminar will provide students with practical advice and resources about researching programs, demystifying the application process, funding resources and maximizing one’s time in school before graduation. The added value of graduate school, whether as a full time or as a distance education student, will be discussed.
