Former Professorial Assistant at MSU College of Engineering

You don’t necessarily have to work everyday, you can make a schedule that works for you and your professor. You often work with a graduate student in the lab. Half the work is lab work, half of it is analysis of the data collected and figuring out what do do next. I met with my professor once a week to talk about what was accomplished, ask questions, and figure out the next step.
