The presentation emphasizes the need for advancing the academic skills to grow in the professional environment. The speaker talks about his experience with academics during his Bachelors’s, Masters’s, and later Ph.D. degrees in the field of Mechanics.
He took his bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Mechanical Engineering and started working for an aerospace organization. Even though the speaker was able to secure a good and well-paying job, he continued his journey to academic development.
I agree with the speaker that in the current competitive environment, only a Bachelor’s degree has become insufficient and dispense only a basic level of professional skills. It is important to pursue a Master’s degree as it is an important academic milestone.
Speaker suggests getting enrolled in Masters as the degree program is of 3 years at the maximum. On the other hand, a Ph.D. degree is also substantial for professors and teachers.
