Technology Trainings

Learn current and emerging technologies and skills essential for your research, professional development, and career preparation.

VPGE is partnering with University IT to bring virtual, professional instructor-led technology trainings to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. Take advantage of these free virtual classes to learn and practice applying these technologies to your research, career planning, summer project or internship - or just to your life!  Add these trainings to your resume or CV to help demonstrate your transferable skills.

All skill levels welcome. The Instructors will customize each workshop to meet the unique needs of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. Any software needs will be communicated in advance and available at no cost. 

Each Tech Training runs 3 hours. You can sign up for 1, 2 or all 3!
