2014 Summer Residency a Success!

Students admitted to the Master of Engineering program must take the TADP 556 capstone course to graduate.  This course includes a two-day, on-campus residency component which was held on May 17-18 this year.  This was the first of these weekend sessions and the instructors were pleased with the turn-out.  Students came from as far as Suriname, South America for the course.  

Students will meet T&D faculty from various courses in the program, tour the campus, work on team projects, and participate in ethics and strategic planning/system thinking sessions.  The visit is a full two days so please plan on being here by Thursday evening.
