Why should I go to graduate school, and how do I do it? – by Bruce McMillin, Missouri University of Science and Technology
Graduate school extends education beyond the general aspect of undergraduate studies, allowing you to focus more on specific topics of interest, to develop better critical thinking skills, and open doors to more interesting employment. This talk will discuss how you can have your education paid for, what the benefits are, what the drawbacks are, how you find a graduate school, and more importantly, an advisor, what exams are needed, and what you should do in your undergraduate study to prepare. Different types of career paths for masters and Ph.D. graduates are discussed.

Is your motivation to do effective and productive work at your employer different from your motivation to accomplish personal interests? Do you motivate yourself or do you need external stimulants to ‘get you going’? Come and learn the main reasons why we are not motivated and how to overcome each one of them.
