SAC Career Event

Wednesday, 01 June 16:00 - 17:00

Many students and PhD candidates struggle with deciding which career path to follow after graduation. Should I pursue an academic career or search for possibilities in industry or governmental agencies? What are the pros (and cons) of each career path? What does life after university feel like for youth? To help shed light on these big questions, the Students Affairs Committee (SAC) will organize its traditional “Career Event” during InterPore2022 in Abu Dhabi to hear from established professionals sharing their personal views and experiences. 

In this session, we will NOT hear about their latest research or industrial achievements, but instead about their different career paths and the critical choices they had to make along the way. In addition, we will hear about the opportunities for Porous Media scientists in an era of the energy transition. You will also have the chance to ask the speakers any questions you have!

This event is free and open to all participants of InterPore2022!
