As a second year PhD student, I have found the event most useful while listening the career paths of number of women engineers who have decided to move into industry rather than staying in academics after their higher educations. As a doctoral student who is very keen on moving towards an industrial career, it is very exciting to see the various research opportunities available in industry.
The talks were very beneficial on showing how diversity (good balance of academics, industrial experience and moving around different countries) is quite important on a good career path.
I should also emphasize the fact that the conference venue, food and the accommodation provided for the overnight stay were quite impressive. I would definitely attend the conference if I were to receive another chance.
