WPI is committed to providing our students with the best possible graduate education. We know that scientists, engineers, teachers, and researchers face an increasingly competitive world and to best prepare our graduate students for their future careers, we offer the STARS – WPI Student Training and Readiness Sessions. STARS can help with each step along the way by providing resources both academic and nonacademic that will help chart the path through graduate school and beyond.

The free workshops are led by WPI faculty and administrators and are designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all disciplines. We encourage you to take advantage of these great resources. From how to prepare your CV to applying for national funding resources, STARS can assist graduate students in building valuable skills. View our calendar of STARS workshops and register to participate. 

Join Us for a Special STARS Workshop

While STARS runs year round and provides unique training and readiness programming for graduate students, occasionally, there will be special topics. Leadership Skills: A Professional Development Program for WPI PhD Students is providing students with important life skills applicable to post-graduation success. 

Develop new skills, increase your confidence, and gain fresh perspectives on how to apply your knowledge base in achieving your goals.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Leadership for participating in the program.
