Passport to Future Technology Leadership

PFTL is a program to enhance skills and create opportunities for doctoral students from underrepresented backgrounds interested in industry careers.

WHEN I STARTED GRADUATE SCHOOL, I knew that my long-term career path would always involve entrepreneurship; but while the destination was certain, I did not have a clear path on how to get there. Joining the Passport to Future Technology Leadership (PFTL) allowed me to find a community of graduate students interested in non-academic careers and discover opportunities to strengthen my professional network outside of traditional research settings.

EHOP is designed to provide students from underrepresented backgrounds with an intimate opportunity to learn more about our graduate programs.

EHOP really helped me form meaningful relationships with the faculty… I couldn’t thank you all enough!
