February was a busy month for professional master's students in science and engineering at Rice. Outside of classes we had many networking events, luncheons and workshops in session with the annual Corporate Reception being the most important one for students seeking internships. With over 350 people attending we filled the Baker Institute's lobby and Dore Commons. Guests commented about the excellent turnout, the nice atmosphere and the good conversations they had with our students, faculty and board members.
The seminars series have welcomed so far representatives from the EPA, Chevron, Microseismic, Hess Corporation, U.S. Business Council for Sustainable Development, Schlumberger, and the remainder of the series includes speakers from ENI Petroleum, Apache, Enventure, Texas Heart Institute, Boeing, Southwest Nanotechnologies, Texas Healthcare and Bioscience Institute, Baker Hughes Technology Center, National Space Biomedical Research Institute, Nanolinea, and Jacobs Engineering.
Application have been coming in to our various programs at a steady path and domestic students receiving offer letters will be invited to our annual Preview Days at the end of March. If you have questions about the application process, do not hesitate to contact us!

With a focus on Rice undergrad students we are spreading the word about opportunities for Rice students to line their study plans up to create a pathway into our professional master's degree which - with good planning - they could finish
in a 5th
year of studies at Rice, completing their B.S. and their M.S. degrees back-to-back.
We also have seen a higher interest in our dual
PSM/MBA tracks by incoming students who have to apply to both programs at the same time to be able to qualify for this opportunity.
