New graduate students are often surprised by the demands of their studies, which are so different than their undergraduate or professional careers. To succeed, they need to acclimate to a new school and city as well as balance life, advanced studies, research, and work. This session will provide techniques for adapting to and planning for this new challenge, and an opportunity to learn from successes and failures of experienced graduate students. Students will develop methods to manage time and organize information, allowing them to thrive in graduate school-and still have a life!
Webinar Date: 2PM ET on Friday October 11th
Rebecca M. Reck is beginning Ph.D. studies in systems engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She completed her master’s degree in electrical engineering at Iowa State University during her eight years at Rockwell Collins and her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with a mathematics minor, with honors, from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 2005.
Anne Rocheleau is currently a PhD student in biomedical engineering at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY studying the hydrodynamics and adhesion kinetics of leukocyte rolling on the endothelial layer of blood vessels. She completed her master’s degree in chemical engineering in 2011, also at Cornell and received her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering with a mathematics minor, with honors, from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts in 2010.
