More on Learning

Paper Abstract

One of my roles as Editor in Chief of Optical Engineering is to be a cheerleader for optical engineers, especially the younger to midlevel engineers who can use a few pointers on technology, careers, learning, writing, research, and strategies for succeeding. So, as you know, I give not just my own advice, but I seek out advice from other senior optical engineers and I pass on what I find useful in these editorials. In March, I wrote an editorial “It’s Never Too Late to Learn,” in which I described two friends who pursued the PhD degree later in life. In the editorial, I described how I was proud of my two friends who summoned the courage to take a run at the PhD later in life. I am sure it was and is an intimidating prospect later in life when undergraduate and graduate courses are not as recent and fresh.
