About the CDO

About the CDO

The Career Development Organization for Physicists and Astronomers at the University of Washington is a registered student organization at UW that dates back to 2003. We call ourselves the CDO for short. The CDO is an entirely graduate-student-run group whose goal is to build industry and alumni connections and create a space where new ideas and careers can begin. Our major contribution is the annual Networking Days conference that bands together industry scientists and representatives, alumni, post-docs, and graduate students.

Prior Years

The CDO has been around for some time, so we would like to thank all contributors. Below is a partial listing of UW Physics and Astronomy graduate students who worked on CDO events. Our records are incomplete, so if you were involved with the CDO in the past, please get in touch. It'd be great to stay connected.
