Doctoral and Postdoctoral Alumni Network (Terrapins Connect)

Get started with our online networking and career platform Terrapins Connect to access the doctoral and postdoctoral alumni network called UMD-DOCNET.  There, you will also have access to view or post job/internship postings, gain industry insights, engage in discussions and more. This is also where you can register for doctoral alumni-focused events, and stay connected to the latest news and updates from the campus and the Graduate School.

      • Learn how to use Terrapins Connect and create your account.
      • In addition to UMD-DOCNET on Terrapins Connect, consider adding in other groups from the system that are of interest like Clark School of Engineering (Current Students & Alumni),  BIPOC STEM, Women in STEM, and beyond.
