The 126th edition of the Annual Conference & Exposition of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) will be a platform to present our PhD training programme, the Transition Zone™. Our Executive Director and Director of Training, Dr Torres-Sánchez, has been invited to participate in the session on 'Non-traditional Doctoral Programs' which will take place on June 19th in Tampa, Florida. A round table with representatives from Texas A&M University, John Hopkins University, Purdue University, Purdue Polytechnic Institute and the CDT-EI will discuss how industry-ready graduates can be produced by designing training schemes that promote professional management while doing a PhD. This round table will be preceeded by a presentation of the CDT-EI Transition Zone training ethos, which is our bespoke training programme to support transitions through different stages in a researcher’s career:

(1) into doctoral studies as a high performing researcher,

(2) through doctoral studies to make the most out of their doctorate and associated training and, (3) on exiting, to empower and equip them as highly employable graduates.
