PhD in the US: from Application to Defence

I will share my story of obtaining a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Robotics Engineering from a US university.

It was a long way from starting my preparations in May 2010 to defending my dissertation in April 2017. I will try to cover various aspects of the process including the application submission, getting accustomed to a foreign country, graduate classes, working on a team, dealing with the advisor, reading and writing scienific papers, presenting at conferences, writing the dissertation, and, finally, defending it.
