Seminar & Workshop Series

Our students learn critical skills from dedicated experts

Through our professional development seminar and workshop series, Duke Engineering Management students develop professional skills through a weekly seminar and workshop series. Students must complete this class in the fall and spring semester of their first year.

Students are required to complete seven seminars, The Town Hall, and the Internship Showcase (each semester) organized through course EGRMGMT 501. It is offered in both the spring and fall semesters.

As an additional graduation requirement, students must attend 4 workshops each semester of their first year, offered by the Pratt Masters Career Services & Professional Development (CSPD) office.  The schedule of workshops offered is updated each semester.  If you have any questions regarding the PD workshops, please contact Pegeen Ryan-Murray ( for assistance.
