If you’re interested in materials research, which can range from improving medicine to advancing computer technology, consider one of the thirty Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers at universities across the country. The interdisciplinary focus of the centers means you interact with students across multiple fields including physics, chemistry and engineering.
Congratulations, it’s early-spring and GradSchoolShopper.com has helped you find and get accepted into your dream school! Below, we’ve created a list of six important actions you should take to create a seamless transition into the world of graduate school.
Take a moment and visualize being in a convention center, full of the brightest physical scientists in the world – making engaging presentations about every category of groundbreaking, cutting-edge, scientific discovery imaginable… and you’re at the APS March Meeting!
It only opened its doors in 2002, but Boise State University’s Material Science and Engineering (MSE) program has already grown into a grad program to be reckoned with.
The best thing you can do as an undergraduate or early graduate student is get as broad a training as possible, in both science and communications. — Dr. Fred Dylla, Executive Director and CEO of the American Institute of Physics, Podcast Episode #4
Communication skills are extremely important, especially to aspiring scientists. Scientific research is funded as a public good by the federal government and various institutions. To get this funding you must compete with many others who want the same funding.
