The illustrated guide to a Ph.D.

Matt Might, Assistant Professor at the School of Computing University in Utah, explains to a fresh batch of Ph.D. students what a Ph.D. is.

It’s hard to describe it in words, so he uses pictures.

  1. I’m such a learning geek this made me a bit teary the first time I saw it. Glad it’s made its way to SwissMiss so quickly!

  2. *Just sharing my view. Maybe everyone else done it better and didn’t go through as I have.

    I’ve reached the master degree, pursuing knowledge for it brings me joy (or so i thought). I’ve discovered a ‘missing chart’ (relating to the illustrated guide),

    The further I headed towards the edge of the circle,
    my personal life and happiness in the existing circle declines.

    Missing out a lot on life.

  3. is it just me………… thats undeniably rude…
