My ever-trusty study buddy 🐱 - Another day, another few sessions of quals studying! We started our group sessions this week, so I’ve been doing double duty: group work in the morning and a continuation of my textbook reading in the afternoon/evening. 📚📚 - It hit me today that I’ve never discussed on here what “quals” are! If you’re in grad school, you likely know, but I’d still like to give you my department’s take on the process. (It has been so interesting to me to see how other universities structure their graduate programs!) - Qualifying exams for me are a day-long test where we prove how much we know about metallurgy. Questions will fall under the categories of crystallography, thermodynamics, kinetics and phase transformation, mechanical metallurgy, and microstructure and engineering alloys. These are what would be considered the fundamental concepts of metallurgical engineering. - Our qualifying exams have recently changed to have only a written component in the first round, and then if the professors deem your score to be “too low,” you will have to subsequently undergo an oral examination. (Previously you’d do both written and oral exam components no matter what.) - So I’ve got about 10 weeks to cram as much into my brain as possible! 6 years of metallurgical/materials science training will come down to one day... That’s a scary thought, but I’m somewhat excited by the challenge 😬😳 Learning and studying are my favorite things about school and this takes them to a whole new level. Let’s see what I can do! - If you’re in graduate school, how do your qualifying exams compare to mine?? I’d love to hear about it (plus any tips on how to survive lol)! - - - #studygram #qualifyingexams #groupstudy #phdlife #phd #phdinprogress #gradschool #organization #planning #productivity #womeninscience #womeninengineering #wearestemsquad #gradlife #phdchat #catsofinstagram #catstagram #kitty #MrKitty #metallurgy #materialsscience #steel #metalsrule #worklifebalance #alittleskewedrightnow

It's done!! Submitted my first PhD manuscript: The use of rainforest-grassland ecotones by insectivorous microbats in a fire-managed tropical landscape. This is such a massive milestone for me, keep your fingers crossed... #acwri #phdlife #manuscriptsubmitted #batsandfirephd #science #ecotone

When writing hurts your brain and filing seems so much more productive #phdlife #procrastination

I've always had a prejudice against thermodynamics because of its generality but there's also this weird pleasurable feeling when you finally grasp the obscure concepts. It's a love and hate relationship. . . . #thermodynamics #atmosphere #atmosphericscience #earthscience #phdlife #loveandhate
