Proposal

Proposal ID: 102085
Type: New Course
Submission Date: December 6, 2017 10:26am
Effective Term: Fall 2018
Justification:
Graduate students must overcome several barriers after graduation. For example, many are from other countries and may be unfamiliar with the procedures and cultures relevant to hiring at American companies. All graduate students, regardless of their country of origin, need to be able to communicate to employers how their skills exceed those of less educated competitors, and they need to be attuned to the need for continuously building upon those skills. This 1-credit optional course for graduate students in the College of Engineering will train students to overcome these and related challenges. Requested effective date in Spring 2018 to facilitate enrollment in the Fall 2018 offering.
