Ph.D. Colloquium Topic:
"
Maximizing the Return on Investment in my Ph.D.: Success Stories and Opportunities.

Date: Sunday, July 31, 2005
Time: 1.00 pm—5:00 pm
Location: Hilton Portland & Executive Tower, Portland, Oregon, USA (room to be determined)
Registration: Participants register for the colloquium when they register for PICMET.  There is no additional fee for attending the colloquium.

As the topic suggests, the goal of this colloquium is to inform doctoral students in engineering and technology management about the opportunities associated with a Ph.D.  Guest speakers will share success stories. Guest lectures will be followed by a question and answer session in which open discussion and questions from students are encouraged.  We encourage international students to attend the colloquium, because their perspective allows us to compare and contrast opportunities in different countries.

 Finally, if you can report a success story that is related to your Ph.D., we would like to hear from you prior to the conference.
