SYSEN 6100 - Systems Seminar Series
Fall, spring. 1 credit.
Enrollment limited to: students in a PhD or Masters of Science Program.
H. Gao, D. Schneider.
This is a weekly seminar course designed to give graduate students experience in improving their skills in presenting their research, judging peers’ and field experts’ research, as well as learning to accurately dissect and summarize the main points of a research talk. Being part of the Systems Engineering program, this course will strongly focus on developing the ability to present research in a broader context or as it relates to a larger system or process, and communicate the importance of the students’ work to a more varied audience; a particularly important skill for both future “job talks” and grants’ “importance paragraphs.” Students’ presentations will also include some research depth as part of developing stronger conference talks and to aid classmates in expanding their knowledge.
Graduate students will be expected to give one presentation on their research as well as attend the majority of their peers’ presentations and the field experts’ presentations that are part of the Erza’s Roundtable seminar series. Students will also be given the opportunity to receive critiques and feedback from not only their colleagues but from faculty, including potential individual or small groups meetings with the instructing faculty.
