Understanding graduate student career readiness, interests, and pathways is increasingly important as changing job markets point doctorate recipients toward diverse positions within and outside of academia. Professional development opportunities, mentoring relationships, and applied research activities can prepare students for rewarding careers in various settings. We conducted a mixed-methods evaluation in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin to assess graduate students’ development and how department activities contribute to students’ growth. My talk will provide a brief overview of the evaluation’s key findings and recommendations. Seminar participants can join a facilitated discussion of the results and future directions for graduate student career and professional development.
