Abstract

What are your career choices with a BS, MS, or PhD? Will you develop technology yourself? Will you work in a team? Will you guide people? Where will you work: in industry, research lab, or academia? Come and hear Dr. Klimeck?s personal perspective on working in industry (Texas Instruments) for 4 years, in a U.S. government research laboratory (NASA JPL) for 6 years, and in an academic institution (Purdue University) for over 10 years.
