Computer Science Workshops

Workshops and programs for prospective and current graduate (Master's and PhD) students in computer science and related fields. With current restrictions set by the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of many of these workshops have probably changed significantly. Updates coming soon!

Workshops for women and underrepresented minorities (URMs)

Academic

Pre-doctoral

Many top universities have visit days geared towards students interested in pursuing a PhD in engineering or applied science disciplines. These usually take place over a weekend and are almost always all-expenses paid! This is a great way to visit schools that are on your application list without having to bear much of the cost. I encourage every student to take advantage of these opportunities. I did this during my senior year of college which resulted in my strong applications and admissions to some of the top computer science programs in the world!

The McNair Scholars Program maintains an extensive list here.

Early/mid-stage

Senior

Dissertation

There are not many general workshops that focus on dissertation writing. Instead, many universities offer their own events where students can attend on-campus workshops or seminars on this topic. Most schools will have writing centers or graduate writing courses that students can enroll in.

Postdoctoral

Future Faculty Workshops

A lot of schools have their own summer/winter future faculty programs tailored for their own students. For example, Cornell has their Future Professors Institute but registration for non-Cornell students is $45. Be sure to check if your institution has a similar program, I know there are others at Berkeley, Stanford, etc.

Junior Professors

Non-Academic Workshops

As academic jobs become increasingly hard to obtain, especially for those outside of engineering, many graduate schools are providing professional development targeted towards industry positions. Cornell has a program called Careers Beyond Academia that I've been fortunate to participate in since my first year. I've attended numerous workshops, symposiums, and even gone on a career trek to Silicon Valley! While I'm interested in working equally in academia and industry, I believe that expanding my options has allowed me to learn about both fields and will help immensely in my future career choices. Definitely check if your school or program has an office dedicated to helping students prepare for careers beyond academia!
