The Duke Triangle Area Pratt Alumni (TAPA) invite the engineering alumni community to join us for a series of short talks with professors and fellow Duke alumni around current topics on teaching and research at the Pratt School of Engineering. 

Please join us for TAPA Talks 2.0 (virtual edition). Our faculty will be sharing current topics they are passionate about, from the first-year design experience to new master's degree opportunities, from research to robotics. There will be something for everyone!

Format: Zoom webinar. Each 10-minute fast-fire talk will be followed by a short Q&A session. All alumni, family and future budding engineers are welcome to join.

If you are not able to join in person due to time zones or other conflicts, please register anyway and we will send you a link to the recorded session afterwards.
