Free courses to help graduate students build professional skills

A series of courses offered free on the University of Windsor campus next week are designed to confer the "soft skills" that improve job and academic competitiveness to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Industry-recognized experts will help attendees to strengthen their working relationships, increase their ability to connect with industry, improve research results and impact.
