Partnerships with Researchers in Industry for Doctoral Education (PRIDE)

By Himanshu Jain, PI

This National Science Foundation Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) award to Lehigh University will test a graduate training model that represents a student-centered, holistic approach that gives students long-term, hands-on industry experience. A key feature of the approach is early and sustained industry engagement, with industry partners involved in identification of the research question that forms for the basis for the student’s thesis, mentoring, delivery of professional development modules, and supervision of students during a company residency (similar to medical school training). It is hypothesized that the approach will train graduate students more effectively to engage in use-inspired research and prepare them with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in an industrial setting…
