SERC Doctoral Fellows Forum 2014

2nd Annual SERC Doctoral Fellows Program Forum

Wednesday, December 3, 2014
1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies
640 Massachusetts Ave NW
Washington, DC 20001

Launched in 2012, the SERC Doctoral Fellows Program is a natural extension of the SERC’s unique research collaboration model. The Program allows doctoral students at participating organizations to access and work in conjunction with SERC Collaborator Universities’ leading systems thinkers as research advisors to study and solve real-world systems engineering problems of crucial importance. This half-day event will review the accomplishments of the Program, discuss Program benefits from the perspectives of key stakeholders and sponsors, and present significant viewpoints of selected SERC Doctoral Fellows. The SERC Doctoral Fellows Program is open to government and industry participation.
