Ezra's Round Table/Seminars Series

Being part of the Systems Engineering program, the Ezra's Round Table will strongly focus on developing the ability to present research in a broader context or as it relates to a larger system or process, and communicate the importance of the students’ work to a more varied audience; a particularly important skill for both future “job talks” and grants’ “importance paragraphs.”
