Description:

Education / Career and Personal Development The Woman’s Guide to Navigating the Ph.D in Engineering & Science "The Ph.D. is a challenging and tough endeavor for everyone because of the exploration into uncharted places of knowledge. … There is no other instance in which one can feel quite the same ‘intellectual high’ and sense of accomplishment that one’s own Ph.D. work gives, so it is important to understand and learn to navigate the process." —Indira Nair Vice Provost for Education and Associate Professor of Engineering and Public Policy Carnegie Mellon University Designed to unravel some of the mystery around graduate school programs in science and engineering, this one-stop resource reinforces strategies for succeeding in graduate school. Qualitative interviews offer first-hand stories and tips from women who have found success in academia, industry, and the public sector. Each chapter covers a different aspect of graduate school, from identifying funding sources, to writing the dissertation, to looking for a job. The Woman’s Guide to Navigating the Ph.D. in Engineering & Science also focuses on the emotional and social difficulties that women may experience, and offers practical suggestions and advice for surviving and thriving in graduate school. Featured topics include:

  • Funding, requirements and standards, qualifiers
  • Making the advising process work
  • Writing and defending the dissertation
  • Searching for a job
  • Learning by critique
  • Balancing competing needs

The goal of The Woman’s Guide to Navigating the Ph.D. in Engineering & Science is to help women overcome the stereotypes and hidden barriers that they might encounter in graduate school, so that they will emerge ready for careers in the academic, corporate, or public sector.
