The topic for the first Student-Organized Event at the 2016 MRS Fall Meeting is academic writing. The importance of this skill cannot be ignored throughout an academic career, whether you are a first-year graduate student or an accomplished professor. The KAUST student team interviewed renowned professors for their opinions on how to improve writing skills.
