Carnegie Mellon University

Professional Development Resources

The Mellon College of Science works through our MCS Graduate Student Advisory Committee to identify the professional development needs that can be well-served across departments within the college. Previous activities have included MCS GSAC–sponsored poster sessions and alumni career panels. 

Current projects include the Sciences Teaching Club organized by students in the Department of Biological Sciences and open to students throughout the college.

Carnegie Mellon also provides opportunities for graduate students to build skills and networks for their future professional work through the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence. Additionally, the Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship offers courses such as 70-423 Entrepreneurship for Scientists and Engineers. See the Graduate Education at Carnegie Mellon website for additional resources and information.

The Intercultural Communication Center provides extensive support for non-native speakers of English.
