Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program Doctoral Consortia
Date: June 15th, 2010
The Doctoral Consortia is a workshop for Ph.D. students from the dual degree programs in the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program. The goal of the Doctoral Consortium is twofold. One is to help students by providing feedback and general advice on developing their research in a constructive and interdisciplinary environment and preparing for their future careers, as scholars and beyond academia. The second is to provide a forum where PhD students can learn about the general set of activities being developed in the context of the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program.
