Beyond the Master's Panel Discussion

September 18, 2014
12:00pm - 1:30pm
Johnson Rooms, 3rd floor, Lurie Engineering Center

This panel will serve as the kick-off celebration for our new "Beyond the Master's: Lunch with a Ph.D." mentoring program (http://grad.engin.umich.edu/beyond-the-masters).  The panelists will be Ph.D. students who are mentors through this program.  This event will give master's and SGUS students a better understanding of how to progress into the Ph.D. program.  The format for this program will be entirely Q&A, but some topics that may be covered are as follows:
  • What is the difference between a master's program vs. a Ph.D. program?
  • What are the benefits of obtaining a Ph.D.?
  • How do you transition from the master's program into the Ph.D. program?
  • What are the timeline, deadlines, and key web links for applying?
  • Tips for selecting research advisors
  • Funding
  • Work/life balance 
Registration is required by 9/15 at http://bit.ly/beyondmsinfo.  Sponsored by the CoE Office of Graduate Education.  For more information, please contact ajrose@umich.edu.
