Alternate Pathways Towards Pursuing Graduate Studies in Electrical Engineering

Share

This online talk, which will be given by Dr. Ladan, is appropriate for both graduate and undergraduate Electrical Engineering students who are deciding on a career path in academics or industry. The speaker will highlight her path from earning her bachelor's degree to obtaining her doctorate as well as her career as a research scientist and design engineer after graduation. She will talk about and discuss the opportunities and challenges that are associated with working in both academia and industry.

This lecture assists you in developing your career, whether it involves a career in academia or industry. She has a bright track record in both academia and industry, where she has published various peer-reviewed publications and worked on the creation of cutting-edge emerging innovations in the field of "Virtual Reality" systems.

You might have some questions like:

  • After receiving my bachelor's degree, should I abandon my studies to find a job more quickly or continue my studies to have more opportunities after my graduate studies?
  • What information should you have before beginning a Ph.D.?
  • What are the opportunities and implications for me in graduate studies and industry?
  • What are my prospects of becoming a professor at a university? What is a good path for it?
  • What kind of environment does a workspace have? How wonderful or bad can it possibly be?
  • Start-up? What is required?

and a lot more questions that you might have. You can learn something about each of them by participating in this talk and listening to Dr. Ladan's experiences.
