Your Leaving Academia Questions About Phd Importance

Written by Blogger. Posted in Uncategorized

Charles asks…

should i do phd in chemical engineering ? what is importance of phd in chemical engineering ?

which engineering is better chemical engineering or mechanical engineering . i want to do some research from my side too help pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Blogger answers:

Both are very general engineering degrees. You should figure out what you want to specialize in first, and then decide whether chemical or mechanical engineering fits better. Chemical Engineering is more science-based at a more molecular or micro-level whereas Mechanical Engineering is more macro. What do you want to research? Your research IS your pH D, so figure out what you want to specialize in first.

Also, I think most mechanical engineers get a Masters degree whereas most chemical engineers get a pH D. I’m guessing that this is because most mechanical engineers want to work in an industry or company rather than conduct research. From my experience, most universities do not even accept Chemical Engineers who pursue a M.S; it’s either just B.S. Or pH D. A B.S. Is probably enough education for Chemical Engineers to work in the industry, making a Masters useless.

If you want your main focus is research, then I suggest that you go for a ph D in Chemical Engineering, because there are more research opportunities. Again, it really depends on what you want to research and specialize in.

David asks…

is it easy for getting the PHD in microbiology? or difficult? what is the importance of that?

Blogger answers:

Any real Ph.D program will be difficult. The whole intent is to make you have a scholarly contribution to the field, which is never easy.

Chris asks…

Taking care of myself takes so much time and effort, I don’t know how/when to work on my phd?

I am fourth year phd student and very self-consicious person by nature.
I don’t have a carefree nature so I give importance to each and every aspect of life and in doing so I feel I am not able to concentrate on my actual research at all. Please give your comments on my problem. I’ll highly appreciate any sort of feedback

Donald asks…

Is GMAT important for PhD?

I am currently an MBA student with hopes of continuing into a PhD program in a private university. My GMAT scores to get into the MBA program of a state university were fine and I got into the program with no problems at all. However, I am interested in attending a private university (non-ivy league) for my PhD next year.

I have a fair amount of professional experience and currently hold and Academic Position at my University, but I am scared that my average GMAT scores will come back to bite me.

Any thoughts on the matter? Anyone with experience on the importance of GMAT scores for PhD programs?

Thanks

PhD programs usually require the GRE, not the GMAT. Some programs don’t require the GRE or may make an exception for you.

Question about PhD and MD?

Okay, so I’m in my first semester of college (currently at a two year junior college) and I’m going to be a doctor. However, I’m not entirely sure on the process. Will I be getting a PhD, an MD, or both? What is the importance of each and when would I attain either? As I stated in a previous question, I am completely and utterly lost in this wonderfully scary world of college. Any and all information would be much appreciated (remember, I’m going to be a doctor). Thank you in advance!

Blogger answers:

If you want to be a medical doctor, you want an MD. If you want to be a research scientist, you want a PhD. Both require you get a bachelors degree (4-year college degree) before applying to the program. The MD is an additional 4 years, plus at least 3 more of residency. The PhD is an additional 4-8 years. An MD lets you treat patients, a PhD lets you do research and/or teach at the college level.
