Chibueze recently hosted the first annual US-Nigeria Engineering PhD workshop (October 2020) that was focused on equipping intelligent and high-achieving Nigerian undergraduates to apply successfully to US engineering PhD programs. Although the workshop focused on Nigerian students, the information will still be relevant for other African students.
The workshop focused on the US PhD application process, how to write a successful statement of purpose, experiences of current Nigerian PhD students, and career opportunities available after a PhD. The workshop was broken down into a series of panels. All the videos are below.
