Professional Development and Continuing Education

To support and encourage lifelong learning, the College of Science and Engineering offers several professional development opportunities that including technical short courses, lectures, seminars, colloquium, and webcasts.

Short courses
In direct response to the needs of Minnesota's high-tech businesses, our short courses give practicing scientists and engineers an opportunity to acquire new skills for the current workplace. Courses are industry focused with an emphasis on workplace applications.

Seminars, colloquia, lectures, and webcasts
Many of our departments and centers hold weekly seminars and colloquia in which experts from across the country present on the latest scientific topics. These events are generally open to alumni and working professionals who want to learn more in these specific scientific areas. Many of our centers also offer webcasts for professionals.

Lists are usually updated on department and center websites at the beginning of each semester.
