Update – this talk has been rescheduled to Tuesday July 28 at 11 a.m. in 110 Maryland Hall.
Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology presents Matthew J. Lesho, PhD, Biomedical Engineer with Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems for the final Professional Development Seminar for this summer. His talk, “Life after graduate school: Or lessons learned after 15 years in industry,” will be held July 22 Tuesday July 28 at 11 a.m. in 110 Maryland Hall Room B17 CSEB. This seminar is free and open to students, faculty, and staff.
Ever wonder what it might be like to work in industry for a small medical device start-up company or a large defense contractor? Learn from an expert with nearly 15 years in industry. Lesho will lead an interactive discussion that will highlight the similarities and differences of working in industry as compared to a career in academia. Lesho also will ask the audience to share their perceptions about what they think life will be like after graduation. This seminar provides some real world examples of product and technology development in the industrial environment to help students studying science and engineering gain some perspective on how their academic degrees could be applied to current medical, the military, or homeland defense challenges.
