Research and development in an industrial setting, though based on the same principles that you learn during your degree program, is conducted in an environment driven by goals and challenges that differ from those faced in a typical academic situation. These make the emphasis on requirements and competence a little different than what you may expect. This presentation will highlight skills/experiences that will make you more competitive for positions in industry. It will also provide suggestions of resources/options available for gaining such experiences, and propose strategies that will allow you to integrate relevant experience into your research project or degree program.
