I'm a Computer Science student with a quick terminology question. For my thesis, I have developed what I have termed to be a "framework", comprising of a set of recommendations resulting from the research, and a table of other information. This
My supervisor feels that the term "framework" may be a too strong for what I have done. I was wondering the difference between the terms "guidelines" and "framework" in scientific means. Do they mean the same thing?
I feel the same as you guys - I have no interest in contacting/being contacted by people who weren't even that friendly at school! You'd keep in touch with the people you like anyway.
To answer your question, I think some people join social networking sites to reconnect with those they lost touch with. Others join just to show off how many friends they have!!
Not sure if it is off much help to you but an old friend who I have lost touch with did this course in 1999-2000. He found the course quite easy as we had studied Information Systems & Computer Science at undergraduate level. I do remember him mentioning that there were lots of case studies to go through and discuss, and the programming language at the time they used was Java. I think he was really happy with the fact that he received a Masters from a very prestigious university. Best of luck with your course!
I'm hopefully finishing off my PhD soon and interested in pursuing postdoctoral research. I've seen a few UK-based jobs advertised however, they all have different titles. I am clueless on the difference between these posts, and which ones would be suitable for a PhD who is about to complete (no postdoc experience). Could someone please explain to me the difference between research fellow, research assistant, research scholar?
Hi, I think you should contact a few universities overseas with strong biotechnology departments and let them know that you have the qualifications and some work experience. They'll be able to advise you better. You may not need to do the GRE before doing a PhD (depending on where you want to study). Likewise, you may not need to do the MPhil either. Best of luck!
Hi Amina, an MSc in Bioinformatics could be useful to you as it could combine your CS and biological knowledge. Check out the course at Ulster University and ask them about funding. Best of luck. http://www.bioinformatics.ulster.ac.uk/-PGD-MSc-Bioinformatics-.html
I'm considering doing some further study after finishing an engineering-related PhD, just to get some training in other areas of interest.
I was wondering if anyone knew the significance of a Master-After-Masters degree (they seem quite popular in Netherlands/Belgium). Do you know if the degree is considered equal or higher to a conventional British MA/MSc?
Hi Guys, I am entering my third and final year of funding for my PhD. I was just wondering how do you know when you have enough research to start writing-up? Does your supervisor just tell you to stop and write-up, or is this a decision that I should make for myself? Thanks.
