einsteinstutor Posted October 6, 2011 Share Posted October 6, 2011 Hi, I hold a bachelors in Mechanical Engg and MSc in Maritime Engg, which had 1/3rd research content(of course in Engineering). However my interest shifted to energy studies after MSc and I'm currently thinking of pursuing PhD in it. The trouble is my research interest would find a place in Social sciences rather than in engineering. So without any research background in social sciences can I hope to convince AdCom to select me based on my academic credentials, SOP and writing sample? I am working on a writing sample relevant to my research interest. My proposed PhD topic is in Innovation Studies, basically looking at how innovation and diffusion of technologies is achieved in the society, just that I am focusing on renewable and clean energy technologies. Any insights? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
