Exciting research opportunities were showcased during the second Lassonde Graduate Studies Open House held on November 30 at the Bergeron Centre. More than 150 people, including 80 potential future graduate students, attended the event. This year, Lassonde invited local Engineering Schools to attend and promote their programs including McMaster University and Queens University.
The Open House included tours, Expo and a number of motivating talks from current graduate students explaining the difficulties of graduate school and how to make the best of it:
• Zoe Davis, “Adventures in Atmospheric Field Studies”
• Marina Maciel, “Graduate Studies in Lassonde: A place to feel Welcome, Challenged, and Inspired”
• Robert Codd-Downey “Graduate Life”
• Kapil Narwal: “Why ME?”

In total, the Open House Exhibition included 12 different booths ranging from the Lassonde Graduate programs to external exhibitors. For example, two externally funded training programs: NSERC CREATE Program in Data Analytics & Visualization (DAV) and NSERC CREATE IN Exo/Planetary Science (TEPS) as well as the Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program and the Intelligent Systems for Sustainable Urban Transportation (ISSUM) program.
