Panel Discussion

  1. Everyone has about 3 minutes or so to introduce themselves from professional career wise - life story as a chemical engineer to-date .. your experiences .. any special aspects.. etc. (This will take about 15 - 20 minutes)
  2. I will open the panel up for Q&A directly from students (Last time, students enjoyed this part tremendously).
  3. If they do not ask any questions - I will start off with the following question -
    How does one choose what industry sector to get into? What should they look for? (for both M.Eng and Ph.D students - answers could be different for both)
    Another question - How does one go about entrepreneurship - when to decide and how?
    Another question - For M.Eng students - Why PhD could be an interesting option and how do we decide on when to do it and where to do it.
    Another question - Any tips for job search? What do employers mostly look for?
