Students enroll at Ohio State University with a career goal in mind – or at least they will by the time they finish their studies. Students from the MBDCS group have nearly a 100% placement in their field of choice. Prof. Midlam-Mohler sees this as an integral part of his advising role and helps prepare students for their professional career of choice. This includes resume/CV advice, facilitating connections with potential employers, and providing recommendation letters. MBCDS Lab members are exposed to a wide variety of experiences through lab activities as well as the broader goals of CAR and SimCenter. This leaves students with a broad base or understanding. The MBCDS Team also focuses on applications and hands-on activities – students leave having marketable skills using industry standard software packages. Lastly, the emphasis on teamwork/communication leaves allows students to fit well within an organization when they graduate.
