Benefiting from a recent upgrade, DMD classes now routinely take place in UConn Stamford’s e-Classroom, which features Cisco technology that provides easy telepresence between the Stamford and Storrs DMD program. This equipment allows faculty to teach DMD classes across both campuses simultaneously, while also offering an opportunity to invite industry professionals from around the country to speak to our students as part of our Digital Directions Speaker Series.
