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 are required to complete seven (7) workshops organized through course EGRMGMT 501. It is offered in both the spring and fall semesters.

Like symbol-thumbs up“This seminar really helped students realize that people around us have quite different cultural and career backgrounds. The seminar also offered ideas for us to promote ourselves, which was quite useful.”
