2019 Ensure Talk - An Engineers Autobiography

Tue 25 June 2019 by Dr. Dirk Colbry


I gave my annual autobiographical talk today to the EnSURE (Engineering Summer Undergraduate Research Experience) students. I give this talk every year and it is noticeably different that most of my presentations because the EnSURE organizers asked me to talk about myself and how I got where I am (instead of research or teaching). The first time I gave this talk it was really awkward. However, now I think it is kind of fun to tell stories about the choices I made throughout school and my carrier. I get a lot of questions when I am done so I like to think the student's enjoyed the talk as well. This year was a basic carbon copy of last years talk with a little design update to the slides. Here are a copy of my slides:
