Professional Development

Summer Institutes

During the summer, UConn ECE hosts three-day Summer Institutes that offer a more intensive and intimate academic experience. Additional information and registration is on our Summer Institutes page.

Workshops & Learning Series

UConn ECE offers some of the best professional development workshops you will find. UConn ECE Faculty Coordinators organize annual one-day workshops for their UConn ECE Instructors which bring Instructors back into the labs and professional work spaces of their academic department. Internationally recognized guest speakers often attend these workshops, and Instructors walk away from the event with valuable information, materials, and other resources that refresh and reignite their academic passions. While workshop attendance is required every two years to maintain certification, most Instructors attend every year because they enjoy the professional interactions and professional content.

  • Workshops: Instructors are emailed an invitation each year. Dates are also available on our events calendar.
  • Learning Series 2023:
    • Maritime Studies. Virtual, January 25, February 15, March 7, and March 28, 7-8:30. More information.
