About the Event: The three National Academies (National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of
Engineering, and National Academy of Medicine) recently released a report in May 2018
entitled “Graduate STEM Education for the 21st Century,” which addresses the U.S.
graduate education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in order to meet
the evolving needs of students, the scientific enterprise and the nation. The report describes
an ideal graduate education and identifies the core competencies that PhD and master’s
students should acquire. Dr. James M. Tien, distinguished professor and dean emeritus, was
a contributor to the report and will be presenting the findings.
