After your PhD
After your thesis defence, you will receive an invitation from the Graduate School A+BE Office to have an exit interview with an HR advisor. During that interview we will invite you to share your experiences and any tips and tricks you might have, so that we can make life for PhD candidates at A+BE as good as possible!
And don’t forget to register yourself as a PhD alumnus, so we can contact you and perhaps invite you in the future to come along and give an inspiring talk to new PhD candidates at our Faculty. The TU Delft alumni network has over 50,000 members worldwide, and we should like all these alumni to be able to keep in touch with each other and with TU Delft. In that way, they can serve as an inspiration to current students, help fellow alumni and support TU Delft.
The Value of a PhD Outside University
In Brussels, the report PhDs in Transition: What is the Value of a PhD Outside the University? has been launched by ECOOM, containing interviews with people from industry, business and non-profit sectors. A worthwhile read.
