Master Classes and Career Cross Roads - YEAQ

*Webinar Available* Young engineers often come to a point in their career where they ask, what's next? Is there value in a master's, MBA, PHD or other?
Master Classes and Career Cross Roads - YEAQ

Hitting a career crossroad is often a time of uncertainty. You may ask yourself: What’s next? Is there value in completing a Master’s, MBA or alternative post-grad study?

This event is tailored toward young engineers who are curious as to their next career step, and we hope to equip you with the tools needed to make these decisions in a well-educated manner.

This is your chance to hear from a diverse range of panellists who speak from their real-world experience of the pros and cons of undertaking further study, and where this has taken them. 

You’ll also hear first-hand from professionals who have completed their post-graduate study, and who will share their lessons and stories. 

Additionally, you will also get the opportunity to network with University representatives after the panel discussions and immediately pursue what you’ve learned from the night. This dedicated networking time will also feature lightly catered food and refreshments.
