The short version is that it is Oct. 30 – Nov 1., you go and hear about what all is going on in their graduate program and see if it sounds interesting.  Almost all expenses are paid and it’s a great chance if you’re thinking about graduate school in engineering. Even if you don’t want to go to UW, it’ll be a great opportunity to learn about what grad school in Engineering is like.
