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:  Lunch Seminars, a monthly Dinner Seminar (reservations required), a series of student Grand Rounds at various times throughout the year, and student Thesis Defense seminars.

Between June and August, the student body travels to an off-site resort for a full or 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. Events will be listed below as they are scheduled for the 2017-2018 academic year.
