  5. Graduate Education Opportunities and the Application Process Dr. Steve Buchberger Environmental Engineering August 3, 2012

  6. Questionnaire • On the blank piece of paper you just received, write down one (anonymous) question you have about graduate school. If you have no questions about graduate school, • write one about • ice cream.

  7. Are you here? (again?) Which path will you choose?

  8. Job Mart Grad School Which career path will you choose? Which path will you choose?

  9. Why Graduate School? Additional formal education Entry point for your career path Career in research Career in academia More marketable in job search Greater earning potential

  10. Still more options! Which path will you choose?

  11. Thesis Non-Thesis Which graduate track will you choose?

  12. Two Main Options • Non-Thesis Track (Masters of Engineering Degree “MEng”) • Thesis Track (Masters of Science Degree “MS”)

  13. Non-Thesis Option  Master of Engineering - Course work only - 30 semester hours - 12 months (full-time) - Part-time options - You pay the bill

  14. Thesis Option  Master of Science - Classes (20 hours) - Research (10 hours) - 18 to 24 months - Full time only - We pay (most) of the bill

  15. Thesis Non-Thesis Our Focus Today [1] Non-Thesis (MEng) [2] Thesis (MS)… “right path”

  16. Undergraduate Days: focus on HOW.

  17. Undergraduate Days: focus onHOW. Graduate Experience: focus onWHY.

  18. The Nature of Graduate Work  Research focus  Learning at frontiers of field  Creativity is important  Team work is encouraged  Close interactions with faculty  Exciting, fun, hard work!

  19. Engineering Graduate Programs are a research enterprise. What’s an Enterprise?

  20. Engineering Graduate Programs are a research enterprise. What’s an Enterprise? Enterprise – a project that is difficult, complicated or risky.

  21. What’s the Final Product? (from this research Enterprise)

  22. What’s the Final Product? New Knowledge archived as: MS Thesis or PhD Dissertation Journal Publications Conference Proceedings Seminar Presentations

  23. During your graduate experience, the most important person in your life is: • Yourself • Your Spouse • Your Parent(s) • Your Advisor

  24. During your graduate experience, the most important person in your life is: • Yourself • Your Spouse • Your Parent(s) • Your Advisor
