PANEL DISCUSSION: “BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN INDUSTRY AND ACADEMIA IN MICROWAVES AND ANTENNAS”
Academia and industry have different missions. Each has different goals and ideas. The fast pace of innovation in the field of Antenna and Microwave is forcing these two sectors to work together to tackle real-world problems. It is noticeable that young professionals experience some uncertainty going from university to industry life; therefore, this panel shall include engaging experiences from people in the industry and stimulating advice from academic candidates.
Wait for an inspiring International and Local Panelists mix from both sides of the world: Academia and Industry!!
Interesting gathering for Young Professional to network more and personally meet with the panelists right after the panel to foster later discussion. The gathering will be served with Hors d’oeuvres/finger food and refreshers. This meet-up will include AP-S YP and MTT-S Engaging talks.
