‘It’s easy for PhDs to become isolated, to drown in research. Through this event, we want to show them that there is support and many opportunities,’ says P-NUT president Roberto Cruz as he describes the upcoming PhD/PDEng Day, held on the 21st of November in DesignLab.
PhD Day 2017 is taking place tomorrow. The event will focus on career opportunities for PhDs and its keynote speaker will be an accomplished UT alumnus, who will also discuss what it’s like to live inside the real ‘Silicon Valley’ house.
The first ever IGS PhD Networking Day took place today in the DesignLab at the University of Twente. The event, initiated purely by PhD students for PhD students, was aimed at strengthening the PhD network and it involved interactive seminars, lectures and speed dating.
Sooner or later, all PhD´s finish their research and need to face the decision on what to do next. That is why this year´s PhD Day aimed to prepare UT´s PhD candidates for the job market. Academia, industry, entrepreneurship or perhaps the government? The PhD Day 2015 gave participants a chance to look into all these options.
This year´s edition of the annual PhD Day is focused on preparing PhD students for the future. It will take place on the 15th of October 2015 and it aims to introduce the participants to all the different career paths they can take after acquiring their PhD.
