The MSTP hosts a variety of academic events throughout the year to which the UIC faculty and student community is cordially invited. These events include various seminar series every year: a bi-weekly Lunch Seminar, a monthly Dinner Seminar (reservations required), a series of student Grand Rounds at various times throughout the year, and student Thesis Defense seminars.
In June, the student body travels to an off-site resort for a 2-day Retreat filled with intellectual stimulation provided by a distinguished keynote speaker and interactive break-out sessions, as well as recreation and relaxation. In November, the MSTP student participate in the annual all-COM Student Research Form to which they append their own Research Symposium featuring talks by several of the advanced students.
