Academic Workshops

Every year, faculty from various academic departments sponsor workshops for potential students who like to learn more about their selected majors and academic pursuits. This hands-on experience is a great opportunity for everyone involved.

The academic workshops allow students to explore the inner-workings of the major that interests them most, to get a feel for real-world issues that affect the industry, and to work with professors and meet current students.

The workshops are free and informative. Students get to learn by doing in a focused and fun environment.
