Articulate Your Research Agenda--Workshop for Advanced Doctoral Students

Can you answer these questions about your research? These are crucial steps in the path to becoming a professional in your discipline.

  • What will your distinctive intellectual contribution be?
  • How does your work relate to directions in your field?
  • Can you locate yourself in your field and articulate your distinctive research agenda?

Advanced doctoral students (4th year and above) in the School of Engineering are invited to participate in a hands-on workshop to help you articulate a post-dissertation research agenda that will locate your research within your field and envision your future research as you enter academia, research or the private sector. These research agenda statements will be helpful in your applications for post-doctoral fellowships and job applications.
