Industry and Student Perspective Flaka Radoniqi, CAST PhD student in Bioprocessing "In my two years MBS Course program at KGI, I did a Team Master's Project (TMP) and a summer internship with Boehringer Ingelheim (BI). I had multiple options when I completed my MBS in 2014 but a PhD fully sponsored by BI was a dream come true. The work is intellectually challenging and experimentally demanding, but at BI I have access to some of the best research and development facilities in the world not to mention the depth and breadth of expertise that I can draw upon for my education and career development". James Miller, CAST PhD student in Bioprocessing "Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) is a great company and the Bay area in northern California is a great place to spend three years doing my PhD. I like mathematical modeling work and fundamental research but, having spent much time with industry during my MBS course at KGI, I am also conscious of the fact that my research needs to be relevant. The KG's CAST PhD Program offers both - It is a win-win situation and I am very happy with my choice". Dr. Jon Coffman, Director of Bioprocessing, Boehringer Ingelheim "KGI PhD candidates can deliver results that increase our process understanding. By sponsoring a PhD student, we not only get a practical, scientifically sound understanding of a problem, we also contribute to the professional training of a student. In addition, the professional mentors of the PhD student get valuable managerial experience. High quality research publications are important to the future success of BI in a highly competitive marketplace. KGI's CAST PhD program provides an excellent and flexible platform for recruitment of the next generation of bioprocess engineers that can meet the demand of industry and for closing the gap between academic and industry based research and development."
