Beyond the Bench
MET encourages students to participate in events that will help them stand apart from their peers when applying for positions at and around graduation. Research and publications are good ways to do this, but there are more.
The curriculum of MET exposes students to two professional development-style classes in their first year to help them prepare to create competitive proposals to national agencies, so that the students can secure their own funding.
Opportunities for engagement abound for students. Whether through program, campus, or national organizations and societies, students are able to present at conferences and network with peers to build upon their CV and identify future position opportunities.
Our students are engaged in their research and utilize that and other tools to stand-out beyond their peers. The listing at left is, but a sample of the accolades that our students have received.
