The Senior Exit Survey for the School of Materials Engineering

The results of this survey will be used to improve the MSE curriculum. The few minutes you take to fill it out will likely have a lasting impact on the program. It is entirely confidential and anonymous.

I. Post-Graduation Plans

If your activity this fall does not involve working at least part-time in industry then go to question 4.

Part II. Information about you and your experience as a Materials Engineering student

8. In which years, during college, did you actively participate in any of the following? (Mark all years that you participated)
