Are you unsure whether you want to pursue a PhD or go directly into the industry after you graduate? Can you stay too long in academia? Is the transition difficult from academia to industry? Is a PhD degree an absolute necessity in the industry? If you have ever wondered about questions like these, then this event is for you!
Choosing to pursue a PhD or not can be a daunting decision. That is why Synapse and IDA are collaborating on this event to shed light on the considerations of doing a PhD by inviting professionals who, at one point, all struggled with the same questions.
We want to offer you different perspectives both from academia and industry, where our speakers will share their stories with you and discuss why they made the career decisions they made, culminating in a joint discussion on the topic. We hope that by the end of the evening you will know more about the ins and outs of doing a PhD and will feel more confident in making the next decision in your career.
