04 - Where have all the female engineering students gone?

The title might seem a little bit forced, but otherwise I couldn't show you this video that I just found :) I wanted to write a post about engineer women because I recently attended two conferences (and will attend shortly the third) and couldn't help but notice one shocking phenomenon: the saddening ratio of female participants. (I'm a little bit afraid of writing about this so I want to make it clear already that I'm  not against engineer men, neither against engineer women, I just observed something that I'm sharing with you now.) You may say that it's perfectly normal in the engineering field but I can't agree with that because this is not what I remember back from my undergraduate and graduate student years. Before continue reading (in case you still insist on that...) please keep in mind that I do not intend to present here a scientific paper on the topic, just trying to capture my thoughts and collect my personal experiences on the issue.

03 - The main challenges vs the greatest benefits of being a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Early Stage Researcher (ITN ESR)

(I guess I've just earned the award for the longest blog-post title ever)
In this post I want to share my personal experiences and views. And at first I have to tell that my case is a little bit special, because I came to France without speaking French and because I'm based at a small company in an office with only about 12 people (moreover who are all French).

02 - Keywords: Bridges; Bridges; Bridges

Let me tell you how it all started. Make a cup of tea, take a warm blanket (at least if you are in France now – 2nd June – you need one...), lay back and listen to the story of my life. :) Well, don't expect a story of Woody Allen-kind, but I'll try to do my best to describe and explain how my relationship with bridges has ever been developing.

01 - Mainly about Clermont-Ferrand

It has been quite a while when I introduced myself on this blog. I waited so long with this second post just to let you see how busy a PhD student can be! :) Well, I really hope to improve my “sit down and write a post in my blog” skills in the near future. Just time flies so fast…

00 - A bit about me and this blog

Where to start? Oh yes, sorry for my English, I would prefer to write a blog like this in Hungarian (which is my mother tongue), but I suppose it should be written in English... Actually using the terminology of my project is easier in English even for me, just the rest is not :)
