Research at USC and Careers in Academia
Thu, Sep 17, 2020 @ 07:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Are you looking to get involved in research at USC? Considering pursuing a PhD or a career in academia? Join ACM for a presentation and question and answer session about all things research!
Our presentation begins by discussing reasons you should get involved in research. We also go over how you can get involved, with tips for freshmen who just started computer science as well for more experienced computer scientists. Next, we'll move on to careers in academia, focusing with what you can do now to set yourself on a track for a successful career. Last, we'll finish by discussing Research and Development, a type of job that lies in the intersection between research and industry.
This event is perfect for people who are already passionate about research or those who aren't sure whether research is for them. You'll hear from people with experience researching at USC, working for a research and development company, and applying for scholarships for graduate school. We'll stick around if you have any questions afterwards, too! We have so many helpful and fun activities planned for you, and we can't wait to see you there!
